EDITOR'S NOTES Dear Readers, I hope this edition of PAN PIPES finds you well and offers a little variety in your day. My family and I have been enjoying more outdoor activities in an attempt to stay active and entertained while social distancing; many, many, MANY hikes have become our new normal. We've also made a habit of supporting our fellow artists and enjoying their performances via online videos and live streaming concerts. Current events being as they are, this issue includes a few pieces about how SAI chapters and individual sisters have been responding to the challenges of social distancing while continuing to connect and share music. Personally, I've adapted to the stay-at-home mandates by teaching my private lesson students digitally, settling upon the use of two screens through a bit of trial and error (see inset). How have you had to transform your usual workplace or music making processes? We also get to read a bit about music education around the world, visit museums abroad through the eyes of Jayne Hanlin on a past trip, and learn about a few of the ins and outs of the music publishing business. Finally, please do read National President Leslie Odom Miller's letter on page 2, as it contains important information about adjustments in Fraternity activities due to COVID-19, the creation of a Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and an announcement about the next SAI National Convention's dates. As always, PAN PIPES welcomes input from our readers. If you are interested in sharing a story, interview, or potential topic, please contact me at: SAI Roses, Christine Bruns, Editor
