Last week was going well enough until Wednesday night. I came home from work with a case of the grumpies that even a good dinner didn’t fix, and it was all down hill from there. Thursday morning I woke up with a fever and all the accompanying fun. So for the first time in 3 years, I had to cancel a day of lessons.
As a teacher you hate to cancel lessons. You only see your students once a week and for the more advanced students that are preparing for festivals, every week is important.
I am feeling better but seem to have completely lost my voice. Having an extensive background in voice, I know better than to try to talk or even worse, whipser. So my wonderful students are going to have to make out with hand signals, played examples and written notes. I think they are up to the task.
