I attended REVS last night at Strathmore's Civic Center.
It was fairly busy, I got probably a dozen inquiries on piano lessons and one lady signed up her daughter to start right away..
You don't have to wait for the beginning of the school year to start lessons. You can start them right away, next month or whenever you want.
Education is an ongoing thing and I think it's better to learn a little everyday and right away than wait for the perfect moment which may not come any time soon, so the sooner the better is my belief.
