I’m pleased to announce that I will be reopening for face-to-face lessons with school students this week, with the hope that I can welcome new and old adult students from 12th April, assuming the current situation does not change.
Due to the national restrictions, online lessons have been a necessary compromise for the last 12 months, particularly for my grade students to prevent lapses in their progress, but it’s just not, and never will be the same as playing music and conversing in the same acoustic space. However, having said that, I must also congratulate my students here who have achieved amazing results with the new Video Grade Exam system since their introduction last Summer.
I really hope we can all look forward now to regaining some sense of normality in the weeks ahead, and with that, lots and lots of music!
It’s almost the end of term, school and grade exams are out of the way, and the sun is still shining. Recently, I’ve been having fun in my spare moments playing around with a GoPro camera and a phone, and have put together a few new improvisation videos. If you have the time and inclination, please have a gander.
