That is so nice of you to offer to volunteer your time.  As far as funding goes, your instruction is SO worth the money.  
So, I would love for you to come back, and so would the students!  Thanks again for your fine work and for the materials.

Thanks for taking on Kipp Brewer as a student!  He is enthusiastic and already one of the hardest working kids in band.
