Congratulations – Summer 2014

Huge congratulations to the following students who have achieved amazing results, every single one!

For fantastic piano prep test write ups: Jessica B & Sophie H

For passing grade 1 piano, all with merit: Zara, Maisy & Anouk

For brilliant grade 2 piano results: Yasmin & EmilyRose

Very proud of Yasmin who had a wrist injury in the weeks running up to her exam, she continued to work through whilst she was wearing her sling! Super amazing Yas!

For fabulous hard work & dedication – Kaspar and his grade 3 piano, particularly proud of the work he put in to his pieces. His blues piece was a real show stopper.

Very proud of Sophie T, grade 3 piano with distinction. Highlight for me was her rendition of ‘The Policeman’s Song’, really beautifully played!

And for Grace C, who passed her grade 3 flute with distinction, including 29/30 for her study. Absolute star.

Looking forward to hearing some of these pieces performed in the Autumn concert!

Waldershelf Singers

As well as running a music teaching business, I am also the musical director for a lovely (and very talented) SATB choir called the ‘Waldershelf Singers’

We sing everything from sacred hymns and pieces to show stoppers, olde time music hall & current (ish) chart arrangements

We are currently working on our Christmas repertoire, which includes done beautiful works by Rutter, first 2 movements of Vivaldi’s Gloria, and the Jingle Bell Rock as well as a whole variety of Christmas Carols, traditional and local. We are currently on the lookout for more male singers to boost out tenor and bass sections.

We meet once a week on a Tuesday from 7.30-9.30 @ the Venue in Stocksbridge. No auditions required, just a love of singing!
