Hear my song

Yes, there is no doubt about it. I miss having a school choir around Christmas time.

Last Monday confirmed it. But like everything in education and elsewhere, these are times of change.

Music in primary schools has opened up to non-piano-players.

Long may it continue. So what has this got to do with MS. Well the beast has deprived me of the pleasures of writing, rehearsing and performing.

Ho ho ho.

Lovely to read Steve . There’s nothing like the sound of children’s voices , I helped out at a few of the primary school manor house young voices concerts . It was amazing to hear all the children’s voices from different schools at the Manchester arena…that was a few years ago when I was able to walk and I accompanied Isabelle’s primary school. I did it for about 3 years we’d all practiced these songs with our children but they needed parents to volunteer to help out with the kiddies , it was a full day and we looked after our classes till 11pm at night and then came back on the coach . I remember one year it snowed heavily and we couldn’t find our coach . We had a few anxious minutes ferrying a hundred and twenties tired children through a snowy Manchester late at night . Those were the days Steve , I never had the privilege of teaching but I loved helping out on all the school trips . I’m now on the next faze , on Tuesday myself and Rochelle took Naomi and Laura my twin Granddaughters to there first session at Weaver vale nursery . Hopefully being in a wheelchair won’t stop either me or you enjoying time with our little ones . Keep writing Steve. Michelle and Frazer xx

Hi Steve

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this, there is nothing I like more than hearing children singing, especially at Christmas time, brings a lump to my throat.
