Astrid was awarded a scholarship to Juilliard’s Pre-College Program—lessons with their faculty throughout her senior year of high school! She has moved back from Vienna, Austria, and is waiting to hear if she has been accepted to Professional Children’s in NYC for her last year of high school.  Congratulations!


Alexa is off on vacation and working as a gymnastics coach this summer. She starts at Mesa Community College in the fall, and will continue singing with the studio via Skype. I’ll be back in March!

Matt continues to work on writing and recording his country-western songs and doing gigs.


Abraham has accepted the job offer in Austin, Texas! Stephanie wants to continue her lessons via Skype and hopes to fly up for recitals! Best of luck in Texas, Steph, and we’re glad you’ll still be with us!

Personal Notes:

My younger brother (Dr. Doug Lunsford) has a tutoring service and has asked me to tutor several people in English. It’s all online, which is really great! As I will not have Reece three days a week after we move, I will be available to take on many more students of all kinds.

Lovely to get this from a fellow DAMTA music teacher about the Windmills mp3 I sent out:

Hauntingly beautiful! Or beautifully haunting? Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind......Have listened 5 times now...Can not WAIT for this 3rd album.” Ben
