Signing My Kids Up For Piano Lessons In NYC

Posted by on Jul 31, 2013 in Blog, Education & Development | 0 comments

When I was a kid, my parents decided that it would be really incredible to make me take piano lessons in NYC. I never liked it, and in fact I actually hated it most of the time. I really resented my parents for making me do it, but as an adult I found that it was actually a really useful skill. I was able to participate in several different bands all during high school and college, and I really loved all of them. I decided that because of all of the great things that I had been able to do because of piano lessons in NYC, it would probably be smart to enroll my own children in piano lessons. I talked to my kids, and although they were enthusiastic about the idea, I could tell that they wouldn’t last long. We went through together and took them to a few different lessons, and I could see their interest start to wane. I was able, however, to find an amazing teacher that my kids really liked, and it was really fun to take them. They started to really enjoy learning the lessons, and I could tell that it was really good for...

Choosing The San Diego Ballet Studio That’s Right For Your Goals

Posted by on Jul 29, 2013 in Blog, Education & Development | 0 comments

One of the most important factors in studying ballet is finding the right ballet studio in San Diego. The wrong ballet school can turn a student off to ballet, while a positive experience can create a life long love of dance. Parents looking for a San Diego ballet studio for their child may initially consider the distance to the studio, cost and the dance instructor’s philosophy. For students who are considering a future as a dancer, training at the right studio is much more important. Students who are looking for a foundation that will prepare them for professional training should also consider the instructor’s experience. A studio owner who has experience dancing with a ballet company can be a plus. However, the owner’s connections with other dance companies can also benefit his or her students. A San Diego ballet studio that can provide young dancers with the opportunity for master classes and summer intensives with well-known dance companies can be very beneficial for a young dancer’s training. Another consideration is how many of the studio’s students have gone on to professional dance careers. A studio with a long track record of graduates with careers in dance shows that they received quality training and were well prepared. These studios teach the proper technique and instill the discipline needed for a future in...

My Son Went To Trade School In Oxford, MA

Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 in Blog, Education & Development | 0 comments

My husband and I knew even before our son did that he wouldn’t be going to college. He’s a smart fellow, and he made good grades in school. But he wanted an education that would prepare him to work in the hospitality field, and he didn’t need college for that. Instead, he went to trade school in Oxford, MA. It was my brother who inspired our son to go to trade school in Oxford, MA. He also studied hospitality and he has had a wonderful career in that field. He started out working in a hotel in a ground level position. His training at the trade school in Oxford, MA prepared him very well, but he says that what he’s learned on the job has been his most valuable instructor. Now he’s over three hotels in his district and he loves his job. Our son has always looked up to his uncle, so he gave trade school in Oxford, MA a lot of thought. He will soon have his certification and will be qualified to work in the hospitality industry. He wants to apprentice in a restaurant first, then try to do the same at a hotel, and he’ll decide which area he wants to focus on after...

Ontario Medical Suppliers Require In-Person Respirator Fit Testing

Posted by on Jul 22, 2013 in Blog, Education & Development | 0 comments

A respirator helps those with asthma and other breathing problems breathe better, either at night or all day, every day. Respirator masks are made in various sizes and styles to suit the comfort levels of each patient, but patients still need to see a medical supplier to pick out and test their respirators. Between that moment where the manufactured respirators mask comes off the assembly line, and the moment that a patient takes the equipment home, respirator fit testing in Ontario is performed to insure that the masks fit properly and the respirator equipment is functioning adequately. The adjustable straps are the most important parts that need respirator fit testing by Ontario quality control experts. No human head is exactly the same size or shape, and the stretchy Velcro straps help the respirator mask to obtain a more personal fit. If there are faults in the construction of the straps or the elastic in them doesn’t or can’t stretch, the respirator mask is scrapped and the respirator is fit with a mask that has cleared quality control experts. Other faults found during a respirator fit testing have a lot to do with the plastic and silicone parts of the...

I Went To Driving School In Winnipeg

Posted by on Jul 18, 2013 in Blog, Education & Development | 0 comments

I have had my driver’s license for more years than many of my friends have been alive! They did things differently in the olden days, though. I learned how to drive with my mother and father, and then I went to take a test. I passed it, I got my license, and I’ve been driving ever since. I went to driving school in Wiinepeg because I wanted to lower my insurance costs, and that’s a good way to do it. I was actually glad to go to the driving school in Winnipeg. Although I had been doing everything correctly, just because most of driving is a matter of common sense, I still learned a lot. For example, I learned that, if you don’t use your turn indicator, you can actually get a ticket. I always use mine simply because it’s courteous to let other people know what I’m going to do, and because it’s safer. Our instructor at the driving school in Winnipeg was excellent. He was very blunt and direct because he wanted us to understand the seriousness of what it means to be a responsible driver. At one point, he addressed me and said, “Ma’am, tell these folks how roads have changed since you started driving.” I told them what they already knew. Today there are distractions from huge billboards to people who text while driving. It’s definitely important to watch out for the other drivers around us, and I was reminded of that at driving school in...
