“There is shift in the world about who will make money. It’s not about your college training; it’s your creative capacity. In this program, you teach in groups. Parents and method coaches encourage students and counter the long-term challenges to playing. I teach families. They interact and support each other. They build confidence and character. Simply Music has made such an impact on me. It stimulates my mind and keeps my brain active. I want to bring that to others.”

Julie Fallon, Simply Music teacher, Bountiful, UT

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
