At 8.15am on Tuesday 18 November Arlington Hall began the day with a buzz! Many parents and students came to listen and watch what was a wonderful concert.
Yet again, there was a huge variety of acts in the concert, including our first Double Bass Solo (by Abbie Moyle).
Dance troupes, soloist, duos and ensembles all performed to a very high level.
Several senior school students came to Arlington to share their beautiful performances with us.
It was a real treat to start the day with!

Leave the instrument out – This week’s practice tip encourages you to get your instrument out, if it is not a piano or drum kit already set up! Having to get the instrument out of its case can be a mental block to practising. If it is easily accessible and no effort is required to get it ready, much like a piano, it feels easier to do the work. Go on, give it a try!
