If you had told me 3 months ago I would be comfortable delivering workshops, lessons and masterclasses via Zoom I would have laughed in your face!
I have to say though I am really enjoying some of the aspects of Zoom. I can chat to people far away and abroad which would have not always been possible. There is a much more personal element at times where people find the confidence to ask you questions they never would in person. I have also managed to bring together some of my old YBS pals and with their help create videos of our time together in the band and reconnect our friendships from all those years ago, that has been a wonderful thing.
With news this week about restrictions being lifted I am feeling a little more positive about the next few months. I will finally be able to visit my mum in Scotland and I even managed to get into school one day to teach! Fingers crossed things improve for the Arts and we can all get playing together again soon!
