Hello Parents,

It doesn’t feel like November today – but it is, and that means we are entering ‘Performance Season’ at Pakachoag.

Lessons and practicing are more focused as we prepare for recitals, auditions and other performances.

Hopefully your child will feel well prepared for this after the October Practice Challenge.

Congratulations to those who completed the challenge and compliments to everyone who made the effort to practice more in October! Please let me know if your child practiced every day so that we can acknowledge this accomplishment.

Congratulations to our new Debut parents for completing the Parent Training course!

Practice Idea:

Suzuki said, “Knowledge plus 10,000 times equals ability.”  Repeating a skill many times correctly is the key to making it effortless and automatic.  When your child has ‘gotten’ something, challenge them to do it in every room of the house.

Please let me know if you have any comments, questions, or concerns,
