Year End Reflection and New Things To Come…
So we come to the end of another spectacular year of growth and success of David’s Music House because of all the amazing parents and students of the South Hills Community. When I stepped out of a 22 year corporate job, at the age of 56, I knew I had to continue working and find a job but it was 2008 and the beginning of our country’s greatest depression since The Great Depression of the 1930’s which devastated families and our country’s economy. Although it was a good job that provided for my family all those years, I was never happy and often downright miserable. To stop myself from becoming mentally depressed, I would remind myself that I at least had a decent paying job and at least I didn’t have to do hard physical labor. So, looking back, I realize how blessed I was to have that 22 year job, in spite of it being a struggle. It provided a lot of learning experience I use today for my business. It also provided savings and money so I could start my first business on my own and yet make sure I retained my retirement savings. I am a believer that it’s always better to look forward and not dwell on past mistakes, but it is good to remember the past in that you gain a different perspective on who you are today and how you learned and improved from the good and bad experiences of our lives, as long as you realize how to avoid past mistakes and make better choices. Everything we experience makes us who, what and where we are in the present, and most likely, the future as well.
I am fully aware that every step I have taken has brought me to the awareness I have today of why David’s Music House is succeeding and growing. I always take some time during the month of December, as we celebrate the holidays with family and friends, to reflect on the year that is ending and the possibilities of the year ahead. Every year since David’s Music House opened on October 10, 2010, we look to the coming year with great hope and excitement. We usually try to make improvements to things we did in the past year that we learned could be better and 2018 is not exception.
We have some exciting new things to announce very soon during the month of December. More focus will be brought to the performance learning of DMH students. A special email will be coming to all of our current DMH Student Families in a couple of days with a BIG improvement in our tuition payment process.
DMH PARENTS AND STUDENTS – LOOK FOR A SPECIAL EMAIL IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
As always…I personally want to thank each of you for discovering us, coming to us, bringing yourself and your children to David’s Music House for your music education and for supporting and spreading the word to others of what we all do.
Anita and I wish each of you a Wonderful, Safe and Happy Holiday Season and a Joyous and Prosperous New Year!
Love and Peace
David & Anita
