Cold Weather and Winter Reminders-Be safe!
– Use your humidifiers! Remember distilled water in your damp-its.
-Heat your cars before loading instruments to avoid bridge falling, cracks and strings popping!
-Carrying cellos on your back is risky business in snow and ice.  Its rare, but in the past 20 years two of our cellists have slipped,  crushing their instruments!
 Take extra caution on snow and ice and carry your cello in your hand, not on your back.  Best to hold and carry with the bridge facing inward towards your body. And do not roll the hard case on bumpy walks, it can rattle things loose!


Save the Date: Sunday, April 16th.  Dalcroze Workshop presented by Dr. Jeremy Dittus in Whitefish Bay.  Click here to register!
