As we come to the end of another school year...
... I am feeling very happy with what has happened over the last few months. Another successful exam session with distinctions and merits among all the passes. As I write, I am still waiting for the certificates to arrive in the post, but I have emailed everyone to congratulate them.
I have just visited Katherine Lady Berkeley's School in Wotton to meet the head teacher and the head of music with a view to teaching the brass there from September. There are currently only a couple of students there but hopefully that will increase over the next few years. I am really looking forward to this opportunity as I teach in a couple of the feeder primary schools and I will be able to see the continuity of my students.
Last week I had the priviledge of playing my trombone in a brand new school production written by the head of Expressive Arts and the head of Music (with a little help from their friends and family). This was a fabulous show, very well produced, choreographed, written and performed. Over the summer holidays there will be a dvd produced and maybe a soundtrack which I hope to be able to share.
Next term I hope to be involved in a different school's production of Hairspray; some great music which I am really looking forward to.
