I held my breath as my Concert Choir sightread an entire piece unaccompanied + in tune this morning. They were so excited they broke into spontaneous applause + cheers at the end, with plenty of ceremonial back-slapping in the tenors + basses.

This is new and magical territory for us. 😊

Oh, I wonder where we’ll be by the end of the year…! 🌟

stem-less notes; welcome to year 12 musicianship

May 3, 2017

Sir Year 12 in Musicianship, whilst tackling a harmony paper: “Stemless 4-part vocal harmony. It’s like seedless watermelons, isn’t it?”

I naively thought they were called “semibreves”, but I’m happy to have my horizons broadened.

Saw this doing the rounds on Buzzfeed + thought it was inspired.

I now have the means to “gently encourage” (beat the message in) the use of PENCIL for music theory and musicianship. Those who forget must not only borrow one of these gems, but have a selfie with it and appear on the wall of fame/ shame, depending on your interpretation…

Can’t wait. CAN. NOT. WAIT.
