Presidential Opportunity


The Plains, GA, peanut festival is tomorrow.  President and Mrs. Carter will be signing books during the festival and then he is teaching Sunday School the next morning.  It is an easy day trip from Tallahassee and a great opportunity to interact with a living president and First Lady.  They also have, as National Parks, his boyhood home and high school to tour and good antique shopping.  And finally, Andersonville National Park, which holds the National Prisoner of War Museum, is quite close to the area.

Piano Lessons


I am 16 year old homeschooled pianist who has been playing piano for 7 years. I'm offering in-home piano lessons for $15 for a 30 minute lesson. If you have more than one child interested in taking piano lessons, it will be $15 for the first child, $10 for the second child, and $5 for any additional child.

I am willing to teach children between the ages of 5 and 14.

Because of my location (I live right outside of Tallahassee), I can only schedule lessons that are a certain distance away (unless you have more than one child taking lessons). I will also only be able to schedule lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays.

If you are interested, please email me at melodyalcorn98@gmail.com. Thank you! :)
