I will be teaching as usual during half term. If you are going to be away, or would like to move the time or day of your lesson, or would like an additional lesson, please let me know asap.
The theory date is on Wednesday 4th March at 5pm.
For those taking instrumental exams this term, the exam dates haven’t come through yet. I’ll contact you individually as soon as they come through – we’ll have about 4 weeks notice.
Note Trainer Lite is a fabulous app for piano students. It’s available on Android for free, and on the “i-thing” for under £1. Do download it and play with it! It helps to associate the note on the page with the relevant key on the piano, so is fab for improving your sight reading.
Do check out the Royal Festival Hall / South Bank Centre / Woking Symphony Orchestra / Guildford Symphony Orchestra in case there is anything which might interest you. Going to concerts is a great way to observe more experienced players and have an inspiring musical experience.
Younger Pupils and Concerts
For those of you with younger children, there are also often events during the day in half term, including the Imagine Children’s Festival at the South Bank Centre for the next 2 weeks: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/festivals-series/imagine-childrens-festival
