In September Heather’s group joined with 200 other primary school children at the Kings Band Festival. She reported that her students did remarkably well as most of the other children had been learning for over 2 ½ years. She pushed them along believing they could rise to the challenge, which they did. She says, “It was a terrific day and our band combined with Kohimarama Band and performed an awesome jazz piece called TOPSY as the opening act at the final concert. Woohoo!!! It rocked!”
Heather once again feels very sad to see the Intermediate Band move on to intermediate schools, but she is sure they will continue to be amazing people with a good sense of achievement and self success, not just in music but in all walks of life.
