Be a beginner again.
January is a time to hit the reset button in many ways. It is a chance to start anew. As a student, it's a great time to dedicate yourself to your practice and be a beginner again. Very often, after practicing a while we are less mindful about the series. Here is a chance to listen and watch with beginner ears and eyes. Like musicians and dancers, going back and working the basics, scales or bar work, reviewing the foundation, allows one to improve on the more technical aspects of a skill. Perhaps this January you can start over, work the basics, dedicate yourself to your practice anew. I look forward to the coming year and watching all the growth of students and the studio in the year to come. Happy 2015
