Have we just had the Summer for this year?

A bit cynical on my part I know, and I hope I’m wrong, but it seems to me that for the last couple of years we have a gloriously hot – but tiny – window of a few days in Spring, followed by several months of grey dampness that is the new British Summer. Come on weather gods, prove me wrong!
Enough “bah humbug” from me, thanks to Thursday early session for coming up with a perfectly in tune D major chord at the end of the shaker Twinkle Twinkle. I know I’m a bit of an anorak about such things but I got really excited for a minute or two!
The Music Makers sessions for next week will be as follows:
Monday 23rd April 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
Wednesday 25th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
Thursday 26th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in the Youth Centre at St Clement’s
I hope to see you all along at some point next week.

Here we go again

Hello everyone,
I hope you’ve all survived half term ok. We made it through on a mix of sleep-overs and days out.
Because Easter is so early this year we’re going for a five week run through to the end of term. Paper copies of the subscription form will be around for the first couple of weeks.

Music Makers sessions for this week are as follows:

  • Monday 22nd February 9.30 to 10.30 in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Wednesday 24th 10.30 to 11.30 in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Thursday 25th 9.30 to 10.30 and 10.45 to 11.45 in the Youth Centre at St Clement’s

The only other thing I’d like to mention is a “rebranding” of Junior Choir into Junior Music Makers. This project has been evolving over through the course of the year and it’s turned out to be far more than just a choir. We’re actually building musical awareness with lots of rhythm, movement and musical play as well as singing. The actual age range seems to be from around three through to four. If you’d like more details please let me know.
