Well, here we are at the end of our uke sessions for this fall.
I hope that you feel that your playing has improved during these weeks and that you’ve enjoyed the classes. I’ve certainly noticed significant leaps in your understanding of the theories introduced in the James Hill Ukulele series, and I’ve very much enjoyed preparing lessons for you that reflect those concepts. I always look forward to Tuesday evenings – it’s been such a pleasure to see your smiling faces each week.
I’m looking forward to the holiday break and thinking about how your “ukulele objectives” might be met, how we can continue these sessions and what format they might take. I briefly sketched out a few ideas at the last session to which I hope you will give some thought.
To that end, I am designing a questionnaire that will give me some insight into what you would like to accomplish and ideas about how to go about doing that. Look for that in the next week or so.
Remember that it’s not always possible to perfect a piece of music in a few practice sessions. Heck, those of us in the BUGe Ensemble have been playing some pieces for over a year now, and they’re still not perfect! Getting a smooth rendition of any piece of music takes many, many hours of hard work – some performers say they practice a piece for 10,000 hours!
BUT, it’s your JOY, not your JOB. ENJOY and make a joyful noise!
I wish you all the very best holiday season. I’m always available to answer any questions you have. You can reach me by email or by phone (734-1792).
HO, HO, HO and all that.
