Big changes are coming at Studio Kingma 2.0 this week! I’m expanding, in more ways than one.
One thing that has been bothering me for some time is the size of my music room. When I have a young student coming in with a parent, it gets really crowded real fast. But that’s to be expected in a 9′ x 10′ room. So I’ve done some work, rearranging my place so I can use the larger of the two bedrooms, which is about 12′ x 14′. Big difference!
I figured while I’m at it, I should paint the room to give it a fresh look. Once I’ve got the painting done, the new curtains and pictures up and the keyboard moved in, I’ll put up some pictures of the new studio.
The other big change is an expansion to my business model. A big frustration for my students and their parents is the need to make a day trip to Calgary every time they need violin accessories. I’ve been in contact with Saga music, makers of the Cremona line of student violins, as well as the publisher Alfred music and Shar music for accessories. I hope to build a small inventory of necessities for students and other string players in the Brooks/Duchess area.
