thank you for Subscribing to my blog!

On May the 2nd it was QingGong concert time!! It was a lot of fun to play with the kids and to basically be a kid myself, haha!!

Portraits” going from the 2nd into the 3rd movement...... 😆 Keeping the beat!!

On May 1st I joined the rehearsal and it was a lot of fun to play band pieces I hadn't played before yet.

We played a piece written by Jack Luo, who is also conducting it here.

I met this boy last year in FoShan when I taught a masterclass there. He was super happy to see me and I was happy to see him too. He's super talented and very into music. He travels to Guangzhou with his dad every week to attend the rehearsals. During the break we got a little extra practice in.

Here's the official pre-concert selfie with the clarinet soloist of this year. Last year I played a woodwind quartet with "the boys". I helped Evelyn find a good reed and shared some performance strategy as we were hanging out backstage. She did great. It feels so great to help out younger players!

This quote came through during the Chinese version of Musical Magic with Elfy Jo.

The original was: 不要让你的自我指挥你的生活 

That might be a bit hard to read so I took the liberty to translate it to English, hehe.

I also had a lot of fun after the show creating this visual 😉

Here's a video that I made with Izzie's help. She told me she was coming in to dance so of course I said yes!! Have a look for a scale practice idea because we do not like to be      bored!!!

Here are some video's that I made in the last few days. As you can tell my saxophone wanted to be played a lot more (compared to not being played at all, haha!!).

It has been super fun and I'm happy with my progress.

I hope you enjoy these video's as it was a lot of fun making them for you.

Let me know what you think of my idea at the end of the second video.
