Update #6

I attended a great conference of Music Educators yesterday in San Jose, and saw some very inspiring conductors; just a reminder of how much we teach from the podium. I am really looking forward to putting some of these ideas into practice on Tuesday when we get back to school.

I earned $35 in tips at Armando's on Sunday with the Bolos, which will be going toward the trip!

I've decided to donate all the tips I make from gigs between now and the end of the campaign! Come on out to Caffe Trieste in Berkeley this Thursday, February 4, 7-9 to hear my band "Yankee Gumbo" and stuff the tip jar!

The chocolate sale is winding down, thank goodness, and we are trying to get all donations and sales from the kids by Tuesday.

The kids are selling chocolate, too, and it arrived today. They are so excited about our upcoming trip, and I am glad we have help from all the generous donors on Fundly. You can really help by telling your friends. A lot of my students don't have enough extra money to take trips like this, and the performance experience is so great for them. We are performing at Chabot College with all the other instrumental music students in Hayward on February 24 at 7pm; come and hear us!

I want to thank all of the folks who have donated so far! It is so important for middle school-aged kids to get plugged in to music, and taking this trip will really help! Thanks, and tell your friends!
