We were entertained this afternoon by our keyboardists, guitarists and lone drummer in our annual concert for this selection of instruments. It was wonderful to see so many musicians at the start of their journey and also pupils for whom this was the third or fourth concert.
The solo performances were followed by a rendition of ‘Smoke on the Water’ by the eight-strong Guitar Group. This group has expanded into the size it is now and they play with a real sense of ensemble. I know that they enjoy playing together and the fact that they choose their own repertoire increases their sense of ownership and enjoyment.
Mr James accompanied lots of the pupils and his inspirational teaching really showed through. Mr Henderson was unfortunately not able to be at the concert, but his keyboard pupils are clearly enjoying playing and I was delighted to see their progress from last year.
Well done to: Adam W, Henry M, Roshan D, Harry S, Matthew S, George W, Anish P, Phoebe P, Edward D, Atticus C-B, Bradley M, Arush B, Felix P, Harry H, George C, Siddharth B, Louie B and Charlie M.
Many thanks to all the audience for the support and encouragement of the children in their practice and performance.
