Boundaries for the blogging

Dear Parents and Students:

I am not going to place personal and individual financial information on this blog site for your privacy and consideration. The messages will be for general reading inside and outside the studio since it is in the public domain.
Please do not respond to these posting with individual requests and scheduling. Please phone me at (865) 691-8897 for scheduling and for questions. I am away from the computer for long stretches of time and I wish to return messages promptly. If you e-mail me at the above e-mail address, I can send a copy of the fee sheet or guidelines of the studio in an attachment to an e-mail.

If there is anything else I can do for you, please let me know!

Communique to students!

Dear Students and Parents:

For those who plan to ship bows for rehair, please consider not shipping over a weekend. We do not know the temperatures and climate of the wearhouses where they are stored over the weekend. Due to some of the issues I have with my equipment, it is not going to be practical to bring student's equipment with me on trips. I am having climate issues and issues where bows for instances, have been mistreated in their 50 or 150 year old past and I am restoring them back to their ideal condition. There is some unpredictability on a schedule.

Of course I am very happy to consult with my students and parents on the care and maintenance of equipment.
Obviously, those renting rely on Lunsford's for care of the rental equipment.

Overall, I think we are off to a solid start. I think balance is the key. Don't forget to have fun!
