COUNT US IN!
I am very pleased to share with our community that in 2014 Preshil children, performing in Count Us In, were among the largest ever singing community in Australia. Arlington children gathered in late October to perform the Count Us In Song that we had all learnt and joined over 600,000 other school students singing at the same time. What a buzz! Count Us In were so amazed by the involvement of so many children that they sent us a certificate. Well Done kids!

ENSEMBLES
As I am sure you are all aware, ensemble rehearsals are back in action! Please get involved and join us in the fun of making music together. If you play an instrument or sing, being part of a group is important for personal progress and development. Come and check out our groups anytime.

While there is a huge variety of ensembles available, we are always keen to hear about what other groups people would like to see.

PRACTICE TIPS
Work in Sections – This week’s practice tip encourages you to work on tricky things in small sections. Don’t play through everything everyday but rather work on small sections that cause you trouble. Go on, give it a try!

MUSIC TECHNOLOGY
Music Notes – This app allows you to exercise note recognition. It is fun and simple and a great way to develop note reading skills. Give it a go and try it!
