At the beginning of every term, one of the most interesting things to observe are the faces of everyone that comes in and out of Shine Music School. There are always the faces filled with anticipation and wonder, those who have stepped into our school and our classrooms for the first time. Cheeky faces belong to the students who spent their holidays only relaxing (and not practicing!), whilst one angry face belonged to a student who practiced consistently every day, and waited for the school to call her and say she can have more holiday lessons! There were the friendly, familiar faces of parents and students who have been around for years or months, with a few tired faces of those students who were already dreading being back at school! These different faces were what made up our Shine Music School community (something I like to refer to our school as) on this cold Wednesday night!
