“Gabriele, I was so sorry to miss you and our last class. I wanted to thank you for a wonderful 2 years of fun, music and learning. Mark and Kate have grown to love music because of you and your enthusiasm for teaching. They love to play instruments, dance, and now Mark is also singing. And so much of their enthusiasm reflects yours. While I’ve already contacted the “Music Together” folk in RI so I can continue with Kate and Mark, I know it will never be the same. As Mark would say, there is only one “Hello”.
Anyway, thanks again for everything. I shall miss you and the laughs.”
sincerely, Deborah De Simone
