My life is chockablock! I have my beautiful Shirley and our two kids, Jessica and Ewan and our dog, Buddy, and we've got all those extra-curricular activities to taxi kids to like tennis, yoga, water polo, etc. I teach high school music five days a fortnight (7 next year), I teach singing and guitar after school, I run two fantastic weekly choirs - Men Wot Sing and Awesome Voices - plus I'm working on the final stages of a comedy adult novel with a mate of mine as well as working on developing an awesome musical duo called The Bucket List with a young mate, Leigh Cross.
Life is busy - but it's very fulfilling!
On Tuesday this week at Alstonville High School, we ran our junior CAPA night (Creative And Performing Arts) and we had a fantastic time with it. The show ran smoothly, the acts - both musical and dramatic - were polished and well presented. It was a wonderful event that ran over two showings - we had a shorter matinee program for many of the local primary school kids and then ran the full show for the evening event. The school hall was beautifully decked out in works of art and textiles by many of our students. It was a great event all round.
One magical part of our CAPA presentations was watching my gorgeous daughter, Jessica, performing with two of her friends, Samina and Charlotte. They performed an original song as well as a couple of covers. They have a sweet and tight vocal harmony blend which sits perfectly on Jessica's finger-picked guitar and it is truly a pleasure to listen to. Here's a quick snap of the girls performing.
