Adults appear at or around the college in all guises.
Some simply deliver the kids and wait in the canteen refectory until the kids have finished. Many give in the unequal struggle and learn something themselves. It’s much easier to tell them to practice their scales when they can see that you have to do them….
Some know that they want to learn an instrument from day 1 and simply get stuck in.
Others reach a point in their lives, such as retirement, and decide that they’re not ready to surrender and learn the instrument that they’d always wanted to but didn’t previously have the opportunity to.
Some help by way of either taking part directly in the association (HUMSA) and it’s activities including:-
- this website (and we always need contributors, photographers , budding graphic designers)
- publicity material
- talking to potential sponsors
- committee posts
- public events
- catering for college events
- ‘roadies’ for gigs
- looking after equipment
Some might be budding experts/tutors in anything from an instrument to composition to the application of music technology.
