Can you believe we have reached the last term for 2016??
Singing Strong studio had a huge Term 3.
Students continued working hard during lessons, working on technique and learning new repertoire. This was quite a challenge for some as there were so many activities on this term.
A large number of students were involved in various Eisteddfods achieving great success.
I held a workshop about preparing for Eisteddfods and performing. This was very well attended and the masterclass that was held was very worthwhile.
We ended the term with a dinner dance held at the Premier Function Centre. This was a terrific end to the term. It was fantastic to see student up on stage performing with a live band. The night was so much fun!

I have been adding some interesting articles on my BLOG. The latest is about organizing a practice space at home and getting into a practice routine. Good revision before starting a new term. You can read it here.
Term 4 will be fast and furious.
1) CD production
I had said last term we would be making a cd. This will be done in term 4.
Last year we made a Christmas cd but this year we will be making a cd of various songs. Students need to choose the song they love to sing and then we will make a recording of it. It can be any song, but would you please let me know what you would like to sing asap so that I can create a list.
2) AMEB Exams
There are a number of students completing AMEB exams at various levels this term and we wish them well with their studies.
3) End of Term Workshop
I will be holding a workshop day on Saturday 10th December. This will be broken up into 3 sessions, each for one hour.
10am: 1st session will be for all primary school students.
11.15am: 2nd session is for any secondary school students.
12.30pm: 3rd session will be for all adults.
This will be an opportunity for any students who have missed a lesson during the term to make up this time. For any students who have attended all lessons, this is a bonus session for you.
4) Performance Opportunity
Our major event for the year was held last term, however I would like to do something for the end of the year. I will be organizing some small concerts that will be held at various nursing homes in the community. I will send out dates and times soon. This will not be a huge commitment. You can choose which one you would like to be part of. It is not a compulsory activity, but I would like to see as many students participate as possible.
Please note that the last lesson for the year will be the week ending 9th December.
