I had told my friends that I was going to go to music camp, Tanglewood Music Camp in Northern California,  and play clarinet. They were all very jealous of me, because at the end of the summer I would be so much better, I would get the 1st chair in the Emerson Band!  But instead, I had to go to summer school and work on math.  It was a great disappointment to me and still it didn't help my math grades.  My family was relieved that I stayed home because Tanglewood Camp was very expensive.  And my friends were relieved too, but I did spend a lot of time practicing clarinet, I didn't progress as much as I would have at camp, but enough.  

If you want your work to be corrected, schedule a private 15 minute session with Rachael,  15NIS
