"Don't be afraid, just play the music."  ~Charlie Parker 


    "Goodbye from Mrs. Dribbon"

    Dear Students,

    I will always remember you.  As your music teacher, my job was not only to teach you music, but to help you grow into confident, caring and creative students.  In return, you have all touched my life in so many special ways. 

    I will never forget the excitement on your face on your first day of lessons, nor will I forget the pride and sparkle in your eyes

    after completing a successful performance.  Music is a very special gift and my hope is that you will use your new skills as instrumentalists to make a difference in our world, making each day brighter, one note at a time.

    So I will end with a quote from Dr. Seuss, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened".

    I will miss you all very much and wish you the best always!
