Hello loyal students, family & friends. It is with a mixed bag of sadness and pride that I announce the closing of Paper Moon Workshop. It has been a challenging and growth-full year for me as a person and business owner. We had to say goodbye to our beautiful studio space in the West Acton Villageworks, as well as move to a new and deeply flawed zoom platform for classes, lessons and shows. I met Will Porter, and we created an amazing conservatory program for a small group of superstars. What a wild ride! I have learned and been so inspired by the tenacity and good humor of your kids as they joined me for these virtual experiences.
We really did make lemonade out of lemons!
I have decided to officially close the book on this venture of love with a deep bow to all of you who have joined me on the ride! This year uncovered a deep well of creativity for me that needs to be tended to and expressed. After all, what sort of teacher would I be if I didn't practice what I teach! I will be following my muse and making music, art, a podcast and writing! If you would like to follow my journey as an artist - you can follow me on Facebook at Fran Betlyon or instagram .
I am so grateful to all of you for our time making music and magic together. Please share your triumphs and stumbles with me along the way! I will always be a whooping fan in your audience.
All my love,
