December 2021

It's almost 2022, and who knows what that will bring. I'm cautiously hopeful. I've started writing new music and applied for grants to support a future recording and a multimedia live show in case the world opens up again.  I always like to say goodbye to the past year by throwing away/burning any regrets and celebrating any successes, so that's what I'll be doing on New Year's Eve. Wishing you all the best for the New Year.

November 2021

I am thinking of Thanksgiving this week, and all I have to be thankful for. One of those things I am thankful for is being a musician. As a musician, you experience so many incredible moments, adventures and chances to bring joy to people's lives. I'm really grateful for that.

I have also started teaching online violin and fiddle lessons on a new platform lessonface.com/cady

On this platform, you can sign up for however many lessons you like. If you would like just a few lessons to learn some Irish fiddle tunes/techniques, you can do that. If you are preparing a violin audition or for one of those violin exams (I've trained a lot of students for both the ABRSM exam and NYSSMA violin and viola exams), this is a good way to get some input. Also if you need some ideas for how to practice or how to develop a beautiful tone, I'll be helping with those as well. I may even start a Celtic fiddle class there,

Thank you for checking out my blog. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
