I was a proud teacher today, and I'm excited for the next two days of music-making!!! This summer, I had envisioned myself spending this year, the last before my oldest starts kinder, filled with slow mornings with my girls, teaching some lessons, and building my oils business locally with classes + education. Well, my heart was following the 'dharmic path' as they say, and I felt called to be standing in front of teenage singers, who were without a teacher and who happen to be really spectacular --- turns out the gift of their music fills me up! ✨❤️✨ My first-go-round as a teacher at Music Festival years ago (before my own littles) was super stressful, I took all the ratings personally- focusing on ways I needed to improve rather than viewing it all as a part of the experience of continued education of my students. I'm wiser than that now, trying to establish more accountability and independence in the individuals around me. Yep, I have a new baby and it is named choir 😍. So, one event down, 23 to go... If you're in Kalispell go check out some awesome kids expressing some incredible music! It's Large + Solo + Ensemble time! ...but first, more😴 Btw, this gig is way better with oils. 💚👊🏽#stressless #inspiremore #musicteacher

  • rlandowskiHere here! I remember my first festival- what a nerve fraying experience. I used to be so nervous to conduct I couldn't even tell the kids how I thought it went! Its so fun gaining experience and having it get more relaxed. Congrats to you and your kiddos!
  • mymamasoilsYes! Thanks & Love you @rlandowski! ❤️
