In response to many enthusiastic requests (see below), we are exploring the possibility of setting up a regular coaching session with Vicki, meeting her half-way in Bellingham. If you are interested, please contact Lynne here. Please put Boeckman coaching in the subject line
Recorder lessons and coaching sessions were held in the homes of Anthony Morgan and Lynne Taylor on January 26th. 10 peole in 6 groups took advantage of the opportunity.
Among the grateful and enthusiastic comments expressed at the end of the day were that Vicki had offered creative ideas for performing the jazzy setting of a Gregorian chant, that she had been "inspiring and instructive", had "communicated the joy of playing" and that she had "conveyed her knowledge with warmth and generosity".
Vicki's coaching was felt to be "extraordinarily useful", focusing on "aspects of the music [the participant] had not known how to" express. " I felt we all had been given a giant step forward in how to approach and work further on this piece."
Many people echoed the wish that they could take lessons rom Vicki on a regular basis. "She is an excellent, energetic and perceptive teacher. "
