November Newsletter
Geoffrey Lewis/ Student of the Month
At only 7 year old Geoffrey Lewis is off to a great start as a drummer. Because of his ability to play along with the metronome and memorize complicated arrangements, Geoffrey was given his first recording studio piece, “Legacy” by Iron Maiden. He is the youngest student LMA has ever taken to the recording studio. You can see Geoffrey performing drum solo 1 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CHJD9q9Gko&feature=plcp

His video of “Legacy” should be out in a few months.

Keep up the great work Geoffrey!

L.I.F.E Holiday Giving Shoppe Tree

L.I.F.E. Holiday Giving Shoppe Tree is now available at the top of the stairs.
It’s a great way to involve your children in helping those in need during the holiday season. Take a take, purchase the gift, and return it UNWRAPPED to the tree at LMA by Sunday, December 2nd. The gifts will then be collected and taken to the Masonic Lodge where L.I.F.E. has the facility set up so that parents can come get Christmas gifts for their families as well as items for themselves. This year there are 183 families signed up that need assistance. LMA is very pleased to be a part of this very important mission.
