Yesterdays band practice with a proper band
It was really good fun, not too scary and yes there were times when fingers just could not keep up (Clarinet Candy
) but I kept up on paper and followed the lot
Very happy about that
Thanks Dawn and the rest of the lovely people in the band for making me so welcome, see you next week
And amongst all that lot of wonderful news, I think the best bit is the bit I've made bold.
Shows just how far you've come Louise : glad you had fun and enjoyed it all!
Absolutely! Well done Louise!!!

My youth choir started tonight - 12 turned up, did really well, all nervous to begin with, of course...
Got them singing arpeggios on yi yi yi and wow what a difference in the volume! Thye looked os shocked, it was really funny! They worked really hard and I had them singing in 3 parts by the end of it.
Think they enjoyed it, said they did and that they would come back next week...hopefully with their friends lol
A great start!
Well done, Dawn! That sounds wonderful. Young people are brilliant to work with, because they listen and remember - it's so much easier than with adults, who think they know it when they don't!
How true....apparently I didn't come over as a shaking nervous wreck of a new director either, though, so pretty happy. We are going to attempt O Happy Day next week in 3 parts....
