Everything arrived in good shape, thanks – very pleased with new drum.
Many thanks for beautiful instruments! They are very, very nice.
The djembe has been a great success, building on a moment of interest. I do worry about uptake of instrumental tuition as fewer opportunities for live demonstrations in schools to spark an interest and perhaps fewer adults around with skills and readiness to notice and build on an interest to learn to play.
As children return to schools music and the arts are even more vital for their well-being. I think it was the wonderful Evelyn Glennie who said that music isn’t a luxury it’s a necessity.
