Stringbabies in Surrey Arts Thu, Oct 27, 2011

A year on from becoming partners, Stringbabies in Surrey Arts is going very well.  A very interesting article on the project is on the Incorporated Society of Musicians website.

The article basically tells the story of the partnership from 2010 to date and I have been really encouraged by the response it has had in the few days it has been up.

Dame Evelyn Glennie posted a link to the article with a supportive recommendation on her facebook page [24th Oct] and a number of folks have posted comments on the ISM site! Most encouraging….

Last Friday was spent training more staff at Surrey Arts to go out into the county to deliver the programme to years R & 1. A great time was had with super and enthusiastic teachers (one of them being my very first 4 year old student - now in her mid twenties!)

Surrey Arts have asked me to adapt the existing books for Double Bass. I am well on with the pupil’s book. I had spent a lot of time mulling how such a book would need to go in my head, so was able to sketch out most of my ideas whilst at Edinburgh Airport! The sketches were probable a little less than legible; my long-suffering husband, who does the graphics in the books, couldn’t make head nor tail of them!

However, I have now reached the bit where the left hand comes into play and that takes quite a bit of thinking through….thank goodness that I have Alison & Yvette at Surrey Arts to keep me on the straight & narrow!
