Music Workshop Weekend
The Band has just completed a weekend of music with the amazing Matt Stimpson. It is the 4th year Matt has visited to take a closer look at how the band plays different music and to encourage everyone to play better, more together, with confidence and enjoyment. All that we learn in one weekend can be used again and again in everything we play over the entire year. Matt has a special way of encouraging us to build on what we already have as a band.
We were pleased to be able to invite players from other bands we have played with over the past few years. On the Saturday we held a social evening at St Michaels Village Hall. It was a chance discuss the days events and play games. There was a competitive game of twister and a tactical Jenga competition. Finished off with fish and chips, it was a great evening and a very rewarding weekend.
