I am now teaching in schools four days a week (cutting down from last year). I have also taken over the Musical Director's position for Quay Harmony. Preparations are underway for Red Earth Opera's first "come and sing" putting on an Mascagni's opera "Cavalleria Rusticana" in a weekend. Another first this term will be to put on a concert of my students performing for their friends and families. Music Makers is now running fortnightly on a Saturday mornings in Paignton, and I am trying to get some of my arrangements for various choirs and wind groups published. Fully recovered from the cancer operation, life is certainly not dull.
