Dear Simone and Keith,
I want to thank you for your email of encouragement to Madeline. I will pass it on to her today.
From my childhood, the people whom I have the clearest memories of are my teachers – the good ones as well as the not so good ones. I remember them because these teachers made a deep and lasting impression on my life.
I am certain that you and the teachers at Myriad have and will continue to be a valuable influence on Madeline, not only as a musician, but as a person. Thank you for helping to build her up at this very impressionable age. With such trust having been established, we welcome, not only encouragement, but correction and needed critique as well.
With sincere gratitude,
