It has been a really hectic start to 2010. Having given presentations for Surrey Arts, Exeter Young Strings and most recently at an inter-authority day in Kilmarnock, Scotland, I have had plenty to keep me going!
Before I take to the road for a string of festivals, I thought now would be a good a time as any to post an update on books. The Cellobabies & Violinbabies books are being revised, in line with the new Violababies book and I hope to have these ready to go out by September. I have already started an older student’s version of the Cello book (for starters) as I have been asked several times and it seems that teachers are using the ‘Babies’ books with ages 3 to adult!!
The first few pages of ‘Pianobabies’ are coming off the computer now and going to 2 lovely teachers who want to try them out. So all in all - a busy time!
My visit to Kilmarnock was just wonderful. I was made very welcome by all the staff, drawn from about 4 music services, Sistema Scotland & RSAMD and I was amazed by how open & receptive they were and indeed how much constructive feedback I received. Without doubt, it was one of the highlights of my year so far. Festival season is just about upon me and I am off around the UK until after Easter, including a return visit to Ayrshire!
