So it's been a little while since I last had a moment to breathe and touch the blog...! And somehow in the meantime we've ended up in June!
Lots of exciting things lined up for the next couple of months for both myself and Jemima Palfreyman Music students! June is bringing ABRSM theory exams, and both ABRSM and Trinity exams take place in early July, so good luck to all pupils taking an exam this time around!
I am looking forward to taking on a number of new pupils, and a new post working closely with young offenders in Ashton-under-Lyne to bring music workshops and possibly the opportunity for the young people to work towards some arts awards qualifications. I'll be meeting numerous instrumentalist and vocalist pupils of colleagues, for whom I'll be rehearsing and accompanying exams, as well as whizzing around for rehearsals and recitals, notably a recital at the Williamson Gallery on Sunday 23rd June for which the program includes an exciting mix of Mozart, Chopin and Liszt as well as a world premiere of the Chaines composition, There's A Man In This Room.
July brings performances in the Buxton Festival, an exciting opera gala in Liverpool and lots of preparation for August's performance of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto.
In the meantime, there are some really exciting deals that you can find on the 'learn with Jemima' page including a refer a friend offer which will give yourself and a friend a free lesson! Now that the sun is shining and our fingers aren't so freezing all the time, take the opportunity to refine your piano skills, or pick up a new skill from scratch!
Hoping everybody enjoys the month ahead and is feeling suitably motivated!
