Huge congratulations to all the pupils who played in the Piano, Strings and Guitar Concert on Tuesday 9th February. It was a debut concert for many and they all handled themselves beautifully. It was lovely to see so many pianists in their early stages of learning, through to pianists playing advanced level pieces with a lovely maturity. The orchestral string playing was represented by Beatrice P playing violin and Rosie A playing cello. We also had some super guitar and ukulele playing. The Junior Guitar Group played very well (in their second ever performance) and demonstrated excellent concentration and listening skills.

These concerts can be nerve-wracking for the pupils, but all played with confidence and a sense of pride in what they were presenting. It is also difficult for the pianists to adapt to a new piano, and the piano in the hall can be quite heavy for younger pupils with little hands. However, all made it play with style!

It was lovely to see so many parents in the audience and credit goes to the children for listening so well to their friends.

Our next instrumental concert is on Tuesday 1st March, when it is our chance to hear the keyboard, electric guitar and drum players.
