We are pleased to present this event for our adult membership. Panelists Cheryl Bretsnyder, Lynne Cooksey, Lois Bliss Herbine, and Kimberly Reighley will each describe how they work with adult students in finding balance to incorporate musical studies in order to achieve optimal success. Time management, practice techniques, and assessment of individual goals will be addressed in this session, along with the opportunity for Q&A.
