This week our teachers have been providing introductory instrumental demonstrations in Brighton College Abu Dhabi. Pupils learnt about and heard instruments from the Woodwind (Mr Kerr) and Brass (Mr Wolfe) families. We hope that the pupils enjoyed the sessions, and look forwards to seeing them in their trial lessons very soon.
Congratulations to Student of the Week; Brighton College Al Ain pupil, Max Wick. Max is taught by Mr Shady who said; “Max listens carefully to all of my advice and applies it to his technique and understanding. Max is a really fast learner, he is always well prepared, and has even memorised an entire piece for the Brighton College Al Ain Guitar Club already! It is always fantastic to see pupils with such passion, dedication and discipline. Well done Max”
IMIG Manager and Brass Teacher Aaron Wolfe was at the BSAK Community Wind Band Day, where he prepared and conducted the Junior Bands performance of ’Creepy Crawlies’. Over 100 pupils from Abu Dhabi took part in the day with teachers from various schools getting involved.
