It’s lovely to be out of lockdown and facilitating face to face lessons again. I’d forgotten how much joy and deep connection I experience playing music with students in live sessions. Now that we’re emerging from lockdown, I’m starting to dream of new musical possibilities for teaching and writing and playing in 2022.
I’m dreaming of our lovely, connected private lessons and groups back to together again, playing in studios, lounge rooms and festivals, making new musical friends and growing established musical friendships.
I’m dreaming of taking students to new levels of group playing complete with rhythm and lead playing, bass lines, percussion and harmony singing.
For myself, I’m dreaming of writing new songs for a new show, performing with my friends at music festivals around Australia, sitting by campfires strumming songs with old friends, and discovering more about the guitar, the ukulele and song writing and passing those discoveries onto Chicks with Picks Melbourne students.
What are your musical dreams for 2022?
Yours in strumming,
