Susan in Michigan- Keep tlaking quiet. I sometimes think no one takes time
for quiet anymore. So many of us in the art field already have queit voices
and we're often struggling to be accepted for this. I too wait for quiet to
begin or teach. i sometimes have double classes so I have brought in a
microphone so that I can be heard but keep my voice in a queit tone. the
kids seem soothed by a quiet approach. Susan in Ohio
