The Direction of this Blog vs My New Website

Hey, everyone! I posted yesterday about my new website. As you can probably tell, I’m super psyched about it, but I wanted to be upfront with you about how that might change things around here.

First of all, I haven’t been posting anywhere regularly (not even Facebook). I’ve just come back from a Facebook purge of sorts, and now I’m all set with new goals, a new outlook, and a new Facebook page to go along with it. (And it’s not even 2020 yet!)

I’d like to start blogging here again, and if the past couple days are any indication, I probably will. This will be my space to post about my beliefs, my life, homeschooling and second-generation homeschooling, and anything else I consider to be generally inspirational. I’ll also keep this blog up-to-date if I upload a new book to Amazon.com. So if you enjoy reading about those kinds of things, stick with me here at WordPress. If there are any other topics you’d like to see here, let me know that as well.

My business website, however, will collect all of my local events (workshops and classes), curricula that I’ve written, thoughts about productivity, writing, mathematics, teaching, brainstorming, and music – all of which are relevant to my business. (I’m a  musician, author, music teacher, language arts & math tutor, and entrepreneur. I also have a small venue that other local teachers can use for workshops and classes.) If you’re interested in reading my methods or thoughts about those kinds of topics, and especially if you’d like to get in on local classes (Franklin County, MO), follow me over at Crescenza Studio.

I’ll most likely talk about some of those things here from time to time, but I don’t want to feel obligated to update this blog every time we have a new event at the studio.

My New Website!

I have been teaching music lessons since 1995, and for the last few years, I’ve been teaching writing classes as well.

For the longest time, I have wanted to give my studio a name, but have never been able to settle on anything that wasn’t already taken.

Last April, I came up with Crescenza Studio! I hope you all don’t think it’s too cheezy. 😉

So it’s the name of a kind of cheese, which is I guess why no other music studio uses the name, but I really love it. In Italian, it simply means “growth.”

Because we teach so many disciplines in our studio, and because it’s so close to the musical term, crescendo, I thought it was perfect!

And I don’t mind that it’s a cheese, because that just means that the other studios out there won’t want the name. So when people search “Crescenza Studio,” they’ll land firmly on our website. 🙂

And this just in: A few moments ago, in the middle of writing this post, I had a conversation with Kim Quon, one of the regional directors for FHE (Families for Home Education). On January 23rd, from 6:30-8:30, Kim is coming to Crescenza Studio to talk about college prep for homeschooled high-schoolers. I’m so excited to have our first guest in Crescenza’s classroom!

Let me know if you can make it!
