Taking lessons and putting in my own practice time has fallen by the way side since Johnny has been born. I am kind of in survival mode when it comes to my music career; find music for students to play, stay ahead of the more advanced ones, accompany violin students, occasionally play at church. But I love classical music and really miss playing. Someday I'd love to take lessons again! (Carolyn, if you are reading, I hope you'll take me back!) But for now I just play when I can, and keep listening.
These are the tunes I have been enjoying lately. I don't really know how Spotify works, but I think if you follow me (Anna Coyne) then you can listen to the playlist.

And here's Johnny rockin' out on his new DJ-ing station, complete with turn table, scratch pad, and-that's right- xylophone. Thanks Once Upon A Child!
