September 2022 General Meeting
How does a teacher set goals for their students? How can we help them achieve "small" goals, as well as long-term success? These were the questions addressed at DVMTA's September General Meeting on September 30, 2022. "Glorious Goals" was presented by DVMTA members Carolyn Rooder, Claire Westlake, and Carolyn Eldredge. These wonderful teachers provided insight into how our DVMTA student events can help to achieve the small and simple goals, as well as the larger and more meaningful aspirations students have. We love to get together and discuss student success, and we are thankful for all of the advice and experience that was shared by everyone.
August Brunch - Aug. 19, 2022
April Brunch 2022
With another DVMTA year winding down, members met April 29th for our annual April Brunch. We love this opportunity to visit and share, and to celebrate the successes of the past year. We gathered at the home of Nancy Chase, who organized the brunch, and we thank her gratefully. President Lori Weidemann recognized Board members, and Committee Chairpersons and gifted all a celebratory bottle of sparkling cider. DVMTA wishes to thank her for her tireless efforts the past two years as DVMTA President. It has been a very challenging time, and has called for creative and thoughtful dialogue and ideas, and Lori has met every challenge with poise and grace. We could not have navigated this time without her! Her two-year term is ending, along with the terms of the current Board and Committee members, and we thank them all for their service and efforts in keeping our organization and events a success. The gavel was passed along to the new Executive Board: Tammy Shorts, President; Toni Tetreau, Vice-President; Randi Buell, Treasurer; and Lorri McHardy, Secretary. We wish everyone a wonderful summer and look forward to meeting together again in August.
March 2022 General Meeting
DVMTA members and friends gathered on March 25th at My First Piano for our March General Meeting. Our presenter was Buffie Meeker, who has been a DVMTA member for many years. Buffie shared many teaching experiences and demonstrated the lesson structure she uses for her studio. Her rotating stations allow students the time and resources they need to progress and become the "useful and valuable" musicians she believes they can be. We enjoyed hearing from her and having some great discussions.
