Since I can't actually say this to anyone that it may concern, I will say it here. I am playing 13 recitals this semester...9 before April 27th...and 5 in one week. I'm doing my best to be at every one of your lessons and rehearsals. But every once in a while I might have to leave ten minutes early, or accommodate someone who's recital might be four weeks before yours. I promise I am giving priority to those whose recitals come first. And I promise you will receive my best work at all your rehearsals and your recital. And if I have to reschedule something, I will reschedule it. If you have to reschedule something I will do my best...even if it is because you are too unprepared to perform. In the mean time, please be patient. And please stop giving me @#$% for things that are beyond my control...or for needing to give ten minutes to someone who has a recital before you or for anything else that I can't possibly divine at the moment. I am only one person, and I am human at that. Take a breath and relax...I'm doing my best to do the same, for heavens sake!
ps...no one who might read this fits into this category at all...I promise! :)
