Are your kids taking music lessons? I have added a new link to my sidebar, the site of Mr. Thomas J. West. Mr. West is a professional musician with credentials a block long. He has been teaching, writing, arranging, and performing music for many years. He has directed concert bands, orchestras, choirs, a cappella groups, marching bands, jazz bands, and piano students. On his blog Mr. West has begun a great series of practice tips for music students of all instruments. Since he has been very helpful to me, I am giving him a plug here. Do me a favor and check out his site.
See his home page.
And his blog.
