On Thursday, I had my first rehearsal with Steven and Martin. It went really well. The flute sounds great -especially with the more jazzier pieces. It gives the concert more of a relaxed feel and breaks up the focus from me a bit. We went to the church and played with the electric piano. It wasn't as bad as I expected it to sound. I felt quite excited after it. It should be good.

The weekend was spent teaching in Thornton. Fleetwood Festival is coming up so lessons are hotting up. A lot of memory work still needs to be done with most pupils.

Went to a wedding reception on Saturday night. It was good to have a dumby run before mine. Consequently very tired today! Back to London tomorrow in the morning.
