Today I had coffee with a student from Northern BC who was passing through town. We recognized each other immediately, even in masks.
We chatted about his hometown and the music making possibilities therein. For a town of 6 thousand there was a myriad of opportunities:
- Concert band
- Folk bands
- Fiddle music and more
Four out of five of those present music making possibilities. For many students piano is a solitary activity enjoyed with a cup of tea or class of wine. Others? It's a party. More the merrier. I help students achieve both ambitions.
