great new start to the term

Well, it’s November 2015 and that means a start to the half-term after three (yes, three) weeks off. We have two new faces (welcome Philippa and Jackie) and two (potentially three or four) who are moving up to the senior group.

This is great news, and whilst their enthusiastic participation will be missed, it’s good that the beginners group is serving its purposes, which are:

  • boot-strap people up to the next group
  • give those that want to not go up, somewhere nice to come for a play and a sing

So, I’m enjoying teaching this term, and we have started on Cecelia by Simon and Garfunkel. It’s going to be epic, and we’re going to mess with it a bit and keep it raucous.

I’m particularly inspired by this cover below by Local Natives:
