So my son is not quite 11, and got a call earlier this week from an under-12 chamber group: "Our 3rd violin has broken her arm, is your son available for a performance in three weeks?".

His first subbing gig - I'm so proud! cool

Cheers, Mike.

"Gillooly"


I had to look up that reference!

The boy's looking like a talent. Grade 5 piano (distinction: 138 out of 150) at age 10. working up grade 5 violin, learning trombone. Perfect pitch. Offered a music scholarship at one of the senior schools he's applied to. Plus he loves tinkering with the guitar/ukelele/recorder/whatever's lying around.

Cheers, Mike.
