Concert raises funds as Autumn Leaves fall

The Autumn Leaves project has now concluded and a number of students have taken part. The completed videos can be found on the playlist below and have also been shared on the Noteflight Studio. A particularly interesting contribution came from Justus, who is our new bursary student at Kampala Music School.

Justus’ and Maya’s videos were played back at the recent “Playing Together” concert along with some great performances from my students. Certificates presented at the concert included a Distinction in Grade 1 Theory for Ruth along with a number of merits for piano exams. For quite a number of my students, it was the first time they had performed in a concert and one trio even played a piece they had put together themselves.

The concert raised another £130 towards the bursary fund which this year has already provided a Zoom Q3HD Handy Video/Audio Recorder for use at Kampala Music School. This fund will also continue to provide piano lessons for Justus at the school. I have put together a “Concert Moments” video below featuring a few of the performances. Credit must go to David Woods for the excellent still images used.
