Yes indeed Cyrilla. We learned some proper German pronunciation too ! hurrah.gif All I have to do now is perfect my modal exercises for your Kodaly class tomorrow... piano.gif

If only I could come to at least one rehearsal. Just one would do...


Yes, I wish you could too...last night was really fab!

Do pop along Barry, then I can go back to singing bass. At the moment I'm pretending to be a tenor but someone will notice soon... unsure.gif

A lovely picture from a 7 year old pupil, of my dog beside the piano.

It's so cute... the dog is bigger than the piano laugh.gif

It's now hanging proudly on the wall smile.gif

Would love to. But Wednesday is a heavy teaching evening for me, so it'd have to be a day when pupils are missing...

Doing 2km on the cross-trainer this morning. It's only my 5th go on it, and I'm only doing 10mins at a time at the moment (first thing in the morning when I get up!) but it's an achievement for me. And I find that doing something that can be described as 'looking after myself' always makes me feel really happy ohmy.gif

I've discovered that my new clarinet does fit in my old case after all biggrin.gif Which makes me very happy because the new case is twice the size and half the convenience of the old case!

Oh, and having the G4 theory terms posted and so I could add them to my spreadsheet biggrin.gif It turns out I can remember almost all of G1-3, so now having the G4 (+5) challenge gives me something to do because work is so boring at the moment (there's nothing to do, but I still have to sit here looking busy!) [It has three columns - grade, term and definition. I hide the column with the definition in, and then write in the next column what I think the term is; which I can then compare to the actual definition]

I was going to put this too!

It was a really, really fab session - made some gorgeous music wub.gif and we thought we sounded so good we even considered going out busking...*tee hee*

We had a LOT of laughs, too.

So lots of endorphins released and the result was six very happy bunnies smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif !
