Honey Pie Music New CD in 2008 - Same Old Slippers, 2007 Single of ďItís Not Just in the BibleĒ
My UU Music Ministry work over the past few years, coupled with all the singing that our womenís community has done, has inspired a new CD due out in February - Same Old Slippers. The nineteen (!) songs are favorites that can be used in any community with spiritual or religious overtones (undertones?). A book of the songs will be for sale as a companion to the CD, or the lead sheets will be available for download at www.judyfjell.com. Also, a new recording of ďItís Not Just in the BibleĒ can be heard on my website! Itís for sale as part of the benefit album Out of the Extraordinary, at www.elm.org.
Music EdVentures 2008
In 2007 I was invited to join the board of Music EdVentures, Inc. I am happy to serve this organization, which has influenced my teaching so much, and has provided the connection with English EdVentures in Japan. Anyone who has ever been a student of mine has been touched by Music EdVentures. If youíre interested in learning to work more effectively with children, music and singing, come to our spring conference is in Portland this year Feb. 28 - Mar. 1. See www.musicedventures.org for more information!

2007 was a year of website adventures with San Diego friend and computer wizard Kit Gately. We have redesigned judyfjell.com complete with e-commerce, and are streaming All Star Guitar lessons. See Education<All Star Guitar! In order to successfully view the video, you must have the most recent version of QuickTime (available free from apple.com). Iím doing a creditable job of keeping my calendar up to date, thanks to Kitís nifty Merlin and Backoffice software. If any of you are interested in helping make the site better, I need help transcribing lyrics to all my songs. Just email me at email@example.com so we can set it up. And, I invite you to sign up at the website for my e-newsletter. (This is hard copy of the first one!)
Love to you all! Judy
