Today was a very busy and rewarding day. I was offered to accompany and perform with a co-worker at a party this Saturday which will be quite nice. We will be doing jazz and classical repertoire, so it will be a lot of fun. My kind of music for sure. We rehearsed today and there are a few songs I don’t know too well (La Vie en Rose, surprisingly) but I’ll be heading in tomorrow to practice them and rehearse again. We also talked about University and how it’s never too late to get that piece of paper. Something to consider for sure.
Teaching wise, things are going quite well. My students are learning and loving music, and I got to sub a Grade 5 RCM student, which was a delight. I missed talking about colour and what you are supposed to be thinking and feeling as you play each section. Really it’s the fine details I enjoy, and it’s a lot of fun to revel in that for half an hour. I hope the student got a lot out of it.
I also heard back from the National Ballet School. They don’t have the dates to accommodate me during March Break, so I’ll have to settle for September it seems. Which is a shame because I don’t want to miss out on the first weeks of class with my students, so I’ll have to think of something. I’m gonna want to have a rest on Sunday, for sure.
