Autumn Term 2018 News
Updated: Jan 4, 2019
There has been loads going for me this term. Here is a quick summary of what I have been up to.
I’ve been very busy teaching. I had three new students starting with me this term, which meant that I had a full teaching schedule. Every one of my students have worked hard, and that showed in the exam results and the performances at the Christmas concert.
I also have been busy performing this term. Playing with a jazz ensemble in September and playing at weddings, including performing arrangements that I have written, of songs chosen by the bride and groom for their wedding ceremony. Finishing off with various Christmas events.
I delivered Christmas workshops in SEND settings, which everyone really enjoyed.
I also attend two training events. The first was the ABRSM conference, I have already written about the event. The second was a morning learning about Physical (Musculoskelectal) health in musicians, run by BAPAM. It was a beneficial session teaching about how to minimise the risk of developing injuries and health problems when playing and teaching music. It also talked about symptoms of some common conditions and what to do about them, and how to get appropriate help for them. This subject is something that I will be doing more studying on in the future.
I have also redone my website. There is more to be done on the site, but I hope things are easier to find now.
I’m now enjoying a break over Christmas. A time to rest before 2019 begins, which is looking like it is going to be another busy year. With loads more teaching, more workshops and songwriting.
Thank you for all your support, and I hope you all have a merry Christmas and happy new year.
