Two of my projects were featured in Sammy Stein’s third book, which is called ‘Gender Disparity in UK Jazz – A discussion’, and this one is already out and ready for you to pick a copy. You can find it in Kindle at Amazon UK or elsewhere at just £2.00 as an eBook, £15 as a paperback.
In an ideal world, we all would have managers taking care of introductions, contacts, networking, transactions, finances, protocols and so on, but in reality we need to know about all this stuff in order to build a career. Using my background and my experience, I have been spreading useful information to solve this issue for years, and now I have condensed all of it in a single website: http://www.successbeyondthescore.com
I mentioned on Thursday that I had found out that we in the UK can have our say about the distribution and treatment of the COVID-19 vaccine by Friday 18 September 2020. I hope you have managed to take a look and put your thoughts forward but if not this is a reminder.
I recently came across some important information and I had to let you know, just in case you were not aware. I will keep it light and brief. I’d love to have found a clever way to link music and COVID-19 in this post but I can’t think at the mo…I tell you what, I will leave one of my light hearted videos at the bottom to put a smile on your face afterwards 🙂
In the UK, there may well be something similar where you are, we can have our say about the distribution and treatment of the COVID-19 vaccine by Friday 18 September 2020…
I am happy to announce that the website for ‘Time For My Music’ is complete and online, meaning that you can get a membership and start learning and working in your music today!
Five to six months of lockdown really weight on the bones, don’t they? Now that measures have been relaxed and there’s a possibility for a lot of us to go back to perform real soon, we need a shake up and some energy to go back to the road full force. For my fellow wind instrument players, a new high quality reed can be just what you need!
After months of sanitary emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK has gotten to a point where certain restrictions can be removed without supposing a great risk for public health. Among those, we got the return of indoor performances starting August 15th, and on the same day, the government updated the guidance for the performing arts in England to reflect new Public Health England research into transmission risks from singing, wind and brass performance.
From everything I have written, there is a song that has become very relevant in these times. It is ‘I will go on’, which I created as a tribute to a dear friend who passed away many years ago. I want you to listen to it with me. To conmemorate those who have left us, and to promise them we’ll keep living and celebrating the life of those who have survived the disease and those who keep taking all the necessary precautions for the virus not to spread further.
Some days ago, the government formally announced that indoor performances with the required measures of prevention and social distance can take place again starting August 1st, which is this Saturday.
