Happy Halloween to you all!
I don’t know about you, but I am swamped by email notices, so I try to keep these rare and newsy!
In this email:
- Upcoming workshop – free to you!
- We are on Facebook, Twitter AND now Telegram too!
- Software portal improves the pace of learning!
- NEW ensemble class coming in January
- Flute lessons now available
- Christmas Concert Dates
Workshop November 20th 2021 with Rachel Factor.
Rachel is a piano examiner as well as a WSMD school tutor; she will be discussing exam preparation and invites both parents and students to attend this one-hour
workshop. She will talk about the reason exams can be useful, and whether they suit all young students. This workshop will begin at 2:15pm. There will be a 15-
minute segment for Q&A at the end of the workshop. She will use room 21 piano in East Glendalough School. We will send reminders but if you could register your
interest on the school’s software calendar via your portal, we would be very grateful!
New! Now we are on Telegram too!
…and here’s the link! Look for the red logo.
Join and say hello.
MyMusicStaff for all of us!
Those of you who learn from me will know that I tippety type away as I teach. Then those notes are sent on via the school software email facility. I have several students whose Mum and Dad have printed their notes and made a journal for the students to use while practicing, illustrate with doodles and create a scrap book.
I would heartily recommend this, because the information is a guide between lessons and a super keepsake for students to look back on.
Please register via the portal if you would like to be in an ensemble group each Saturday afternoon.
Eoin Fallon will run this class each Saturday – time to be decided – and starting in January.
Eoin is also offering FLUTE classes each Saturday, so please tell your friends!
The dates are now set for Saturday, December 11 at 4:00pm and another concert at 6pm. Each one is an hour long, and allow only 10 students.
There is a reserve date of the Sunday December 12 in case too many cannot attend the Saturday shows. You must register via the school
portal and this will tell you if there is an available place.
These will run in the East Glendalough School room 21.
So that's all for now, and as always I wish you good health and happiness and I am so looking forward to seeing you all at the Concerts!
