President's Message

Dear Irvine Branch Members, Happy November!


I hope everyone is safe and well following our recent wildfire turmoil. Give thanks to God and our firefighters who worked so hard to protect lives and property. I admire all of you for keeping your students learning and maintaining your studios during this past 10-month pandemic period. Our positive attitudes and spirits have a real influence on those around us. Let’s keep up our efforts to focus on a bright future.


I am very grateful that our first virtual festival went so well. Thank you to the festival chair, co-chair, and web engineer. Without them, it would not have been able to be accomplished successfully. The second festival is around the corner. Please check the dates and details of participation if you plan to send your students.


At our October branch meeting Ed Whitting gave us an outstanding presentation, sharing his depth of knowledge on taking care of, and cleaning our pianos. He is willing to come back in the future. His sincerity and generosity is admirable.


At our November branch meeting Helen Marlais will be our speaker, sharing her teaching knowledge and experiences with us. Please don’t miss this special opportunity!

For anyone who didn’t get the 2020-2021 yearbook, please contact me if you want to have a hard copy. Text or send me an email so I can bring you one to pick up at Woodbridge Yamaha Music Center. (909-210-7516 or


Looking forward to “seeing” you at our November Zoom meeting.
