I’m preparing a workshop with music and English, (for Spanish littleúns) and making use of play songs written by Paul Nordoff (composer) and Clive Robbins (lyrics). For one thing they´re enchanting, and for another, they make it very easy for the “teacher” by suggesting how to do them with the children.
As I thought, I’ve found it hard to blog consistently – daily life is so engaging. I play trumpet in a streetband (again), and I’ve been writing parts for the brass so we can play Zorba’s dance, to show solidarity with people in the same boat. First time I’ve transcribed something for bouzouki to horns! Yes, I know Herb Alpert did, but he also had the help of a bouzouki section at intervals.
