Happy 2013! How’s it shaping up? Mine accelerating…

So, after a hectic social Christmas and New year in Devon and Cornwall (see picture I took of the beautiful Praa Sands)praa
I finally succumbed to the flu epidemic and spent the 1st week of 2013 watching a lot of DVDs and in my bed.
Up and recovering now, back at my p/t job arranging meetings and activities for parents of disabled/SEN children in Hackney, London. One of the schools I teach music at has asked me to MD (Musically Direct) their Spring Show, The Premises Studios have asked me to run keyboard and drum classes for a course for them and I am back to teaching piano and drums with regular and new pupils this week already. I do still have some availability so why not treat yourself to a taster lesson and do something new, different and enriching to start the year? Learn an instrument!
I received my kit bag for my new Roland Portable Drum Kit and love it as I can now get to gigs with my drum kit in a bag! That means hopping on a bus to get to the gig – amazing!
I also have acquired a second keyboard and have been writing new music with a view to getting back in to providing music for commercials – something I did to great success for some time (see my showreel on the “Barney Musician Playing Instruments” page) . I have also added a NEW page on this website with information about my BARNSTORMER festival this summer. Plans are under way, venue and bands booked and tickets on sale!
I have also noticed that many organisations (including The Carers Centre where I work) are having their Christmas Parties AFTER Christmas so if you know of any coming up and would like to book Chef De Party see the Performance Options page here to check out what we do and give me a call!
Finally, I am very pleased to have the hectic pace of Christmas behind me with all those Santa Appearances and just glad the Easter Bunny (Barney?) isn’t quite so in demand! Have a great 2013, subscribe to this blog and follow me on Twitter @barneymusician and FaceBook at Barney Musician. Let me know if you would like a lesson or performance option or need a PA or recording of an event.
Barney 😉
