It was a great pleasure teaching class at Birkdale today. I've seen a lot of the children come a long way – skills continuously improving in the areas of social and musical abilities. Keeping the beat, sharing well, playing instruments properly and with a cohesive tempo, are all examples of skills I saw in many of the Birkdale children today. Our instrument of the week was the singing bowls from Tibet, which a few of the kids were able to operationalize with little to no adult help. Everyone is really coming a long way!
