Marie Kaminski of Bridgewater is excited to share her love of music learning and piano playing with local learners. She moved to the area two yrs ago with her husband, both of them having retired. For over 30 years, Marie has been actively involved in music education - teaching piano, early childhood music, and “Music Together.” Marie has varied experience teaching all ages. For the last 15 years, her focus has been in- corporating a revolutionary approach - the “Music Moves for Piano” method, which includes listening, singing, movement, audiation, and notation on top of pure piano technique skills! The method authored by Marilyn Lowe with Edwin E Gordon is based on the Music Learning Theory. (www.musicmoves- This method is age appropriate for all learners and can be incorporated with all ages - even those who play already. The foundation is that music learning is like language learning - listening, audiating, and exploring comes before reading it. Marie is accepting Beginners to Intermediate play- ers -Ages 5 and up. She is located in Bridgewater, off 3A, and currently has availability on Wednesdays. For more info, email

  Fun Ways To Celebrate Father’s Day This Year
 Father’s Day presents an op- portunity for people to honor the special men in their
lives. These include not
only dads, but father fig- ures and other influential men who offer care and guidance to the people they love.
Many celebrations continue to look differ-
ent than they were prior
to the pandemic, and Fa-
ther’s Day festivities may
still require some mod- ifications this year. The following are some ways to show dads they are appreciated.

Restrictions on outdoor gath- erings have eased up consider- ably in many areas. Outdoor parties are some of the safer ways to bring people together, particu- larly if attendees maintain their distance. Weather permitting, families can host barbecues and enlist someone other than Dad to man the grill. Serve foods buf- fet-style and space out tables so people can safely celebrate.
Plan a sports outing
Professional sports teams are
Dad lead the way and choose the activity, and then everyone can step away from their screens and come to- gether at the table over jigsaw puzzles or trivia
Host a beer tasting
If Dad is a beer lover, organize a trip to a local craft brewery to sample their offerings. If estab- lishments are closed or still restricting indoor seat- ing, pick up beers from a
few different breweries and cre- ate a flight at home.
Set up an outdoor movie night
Perfect for a father who is a movie buff, borrow or purchase a projector and show a movie on an outdoor screen or against a blank outdoor wall. Select one of Dad’s favorite movies to watch and invite friends and family to join in on the fun. Make sure there are refreshments at the ready and plenty of hot popcorn.
Celebrating Father’s Day this year may require some ingenuity, but there is still fun to be had.
