My first week done and I am ready for some more!

Well I have been to all my classes. My schedule is nice, short Mondays, LONG Tuesdays, very very light Wednesdays, LONG Thursdays, light Fridays. The only thing that would make it better was no Friday afternoon class. All my teachers are amazing! They are clearly here to help us grow. It is so nice to be in that environment! I am taking: Solfege, Hungarian, Methodology (where we observe and discuss the Kodaly method in elementary classes) Hungarian Music Lit, Folk Music, choir, Voice and Piano Lessons, Chamber Ensemble and I am observing a conducting class. I am very excited and I have already learned sooooo much! All my classes are very small but it is nice to have an intimate setting with these AMAZING musicians. We went to see the Bartok Quartet, wow they were superb.
The weather has been very strange, it rains every night with a clear morning. It is nice to go to the market in the mornings however. The past three days have been nice; however, it wont last for very long.
I have a lot of work but I am slowly chipping away at the pile (literally) of music on top of my piano. I hope that everyone is having a good fall, the leaves have just turned colors and it is so beautiful here. I miss you all!
This is a picture of the first grade class. We observed them use a 5 line staff for the first time, they know so much already and they were constantly smiling.
