What a night!!
So insanely proud of the Ballarat Grammar School Year 7 Pipe Band after tonight’s stellar performances!
These pupils have been learning the bagpipes since May, although I have only been teaching them since October and for them to have achieved so much in such a short space of time is incredible!! We played 3 sets tonight; Amazing Grace – (which the kids learnt with me), Bluebells (which they already knew) and a rock number mash-up, ‘Wake me up when We Will Rock you’ (Avicci & Queen!) – which we only put together 3 weeks ago!! It was so good and so much fun to play!
Was also super cool to have the year 7 drummers join us, playing on our brand new drums for the 5th time! These guys were awesome playing unaccompanied tonight, as our drumming instructor (Tom Mewett) couldn’t make it.
Hoping that a lot of these kids will continue on with their bagpipe lessons next year as they have so much potential! #watchthisspace
