As you know, the performing arts industry is currently 'hibernating' due to the Covid-19 situation and the government's guidance. This is a very worrying time for performers and musicians.
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance has closed its buildings, and teaching is now only happening online: It is likely that this will continue for me until the end of the summer term, and that I won't return to college until September.
All of my performance engagements up to and including July have also been cancelled. Like many people, I'm using this time to think about repertoire, try and get some recordings made, and also to think about my teaching practice, engaging with the course materials from my Masters module in Contemporary Music Pedagogy.
I hope you stay safe and keep well, and keep looking forward to things returning to somewhere-near-normal!
