Oxford & Cambridge NoteRace - teach yourself double bass, pass greade 1 in 9 weeks, oh well ok then, it will be fun!
I am beginning to think that I may have bitten of more than I can chew this time. Never mind, its all for a really worthwhile charity, Homestart. On the 9th of September I’ll be joining 120 grade 8+ standard music teachersto take my grade on examination on the double bass (or possibly cello as I can’t actually reach the bass without standing on cake tins). I’ve got 9 weeks to teach myself, no lessons allowed. Blimey. Here I am below mulling over the enormity of the challenge with flute playing friend Liatt and ace singer/teacher Christine Cairns. Can’t wait, better get practising! Hoping to raise lots of money and at the end of it all there will be a concert, a special concert of 120 grade 1 musicians you see. You are all invited, bring ear plugs just in case! if you would like to support me with a donation please link to my ‘My donate Page’ here!
