Ten students graduated this years Ashland Fire Department's Camp Bailout. The program allows teenage girls between 12 and 19 to explore what it's like to work in the fire and emergency medical service professions. Participants in the program had the opportunity to learn and use equipment and also talk to industry professionals. Sara Jordan of the Hopkinton Fire Department was one of the instructors of Camp Bailout; "The students were great they all worked very well together, they worked with us, they were very receptive, asked lots of questions and I think they learned a lot."

Shirin Hunold joines HCA!

Teaching Approach: My teaching philosophy focuses on creating a relationship between the student and the piano that is a lifelong source of joy and discovery. I continually look for music that inspires the student at any skill level and I set small, easily achievable goals that allow the student to feel motivated by his or her own success. My goal is to guide the student on a path toward self-expression, having fun while learning, and overcoming challenges through organization and consistency.
