Hello again! I hope you are having a great summer, it’s been a rather busy few weeks but here’s what’s been going on. I flew to Edinburgh to visit my family briefly and playing couple of gigs in the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival 2017 before heading to the south of France to recharge my batteries with my partner in crime Emily Davis. I then flew back to Scotland and headed straight to Perth to teach on the The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland – NYOS Children’s Orchestra String Training Course where I coached the bass section, did some jazz workshops and taught all the string players how to improvise! I’ve done this course for 5 years and each year the students are more keen than ever to do some jazz playing which is great!
If you are interesting in applying for any of the NYOS ensembles or are just curious about participating on one of their courses, check out their website here www.nyos.co.uk
Here are some pictures from the summer!
