Studio News

I have been very excited to resume private teaching after two years' break for marriage and babies in rural Register, Georgia. (Note the Anderson Music Studio: Studio Handbook at the top right sidebar.) This has been great. I have already been teaching one new student since October and she is progressing wonderfully. There has also been a significant increase among prospective students and this is, of course, very exciting. :-) I have always really enjoyed teaching and I hope to continue to do so as long as the Lord allows. My only regret is that I didn't learn to play guitar from my Dad or buy a viola when I had the financial ability to do so.

There is one very important note that I must make concerning a change to the Studio Handbook. I am no longer offering music instruction outside of my home.

Previously I offered to drive to another location for a small fee per lesson for vehicular maintenance and time. However, after much consideration of the Proverbs 31 Woman making a successful enterprise within the context of her home, my husband and I decided that it would be best to keep my small business as such. Although my previous service was very beneficial for my prospective students and their families, I also have to keep the care of my family a top priority. This decision was reached by especially considering the potential thriving business this could become and the time away from my primary vocation this could present in the future. I am not an evangelical feminist. Being a wife and mother is my primary role, not financial provision. This is the reason for the change. This decision was arrived by much thought, discussion and meditation on the Word and we feel confident that this will honor and glorify God.

I appreciate your interest in receiving musical instruction from my Studio. If you must drive a considerable distance (which length will be soon decided and updated in the Handbook) then I may (or may not - I've not yet decided) offer a reduction in my hourly rates. If the removal of this service causes you to consider other studios and music academies, etc. closer to your residence, I pray you have a good experience wherever you may go. You may always ask for advice on specific string issues for which I charge no fee. :-)

If you have any other questions, please, feel free to comment, call or email me.

Grace to you.

I think that is a wise choice :-) Are lessons still only available in your home on Tuesdays and Saturdays?

Because of this, it will be easier to offer lessons on several days during the week. You (or anyone) can let me know the top two days that work best for you and we can work it out. :-) Thanks for the support. :-)
