‘Play It Like A Man’ – 4 weeks to go!

Wai-Sum Chong Almost 4 weeks to go!  Not long to the next CFMNE meeting.  It’s gonna be good!

Wai Sum Chong will be delivering the Master Class tips session on ‘Articulation’. Here is Wai Sum’s biog:

‘Wai Sum Chong is a freelance pianist specialising in accompaniment. Based in the West Midlands, she found her niche 7 years ago as a ballet pianist working with companies and schools such as the Birmingham Royal Ballet, Scottish Ballet, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, School of Ballet Theatre UK and Elmhurst School for Dance. She is currently Musical Director of the Midland Theatre Ballet. Apart from her dance – based activities, Wai Sum also teaches piano privately and works with dementia sufferers by performing live concerts at Lost Chord and Music in Hospitals. Wai Sum also plays the djembe and spent a few years learning the violin’

Pretty good!  She will cover:

– What is articulation? Have you got it?
– Physical differences between men and women which contribute to articulation
– Accessing good articulation – technique , listening, imagination, knowledge
– Demonstration – ‘The Good, the Bad , and the Ugly’
