On instruction from the UK Government, Coda Music Centre remains closed. All of our activities, both on site and off-site are suspended until further notice.
We hope you are all continuing to stay safe and well.
In pre-pandemic times our spring term would have finished and we would have broken up for the Easter holidays. We hope, despite everything, that you are still able to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing Easter.
We appreciate how difficult the present situation with coronavirus is for all of you and we will do our best to support your music learning and enjoyment while the Music Centre is closed.
To get the most from Coda, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and check our website where you will find regular links, resources and updates, including a weekly Facebook Live event and a weekly roundup of music activity.
This week we are grateful to Owain Clarke, who performed a lovely harp concert for us all from his front room. So far he has raised £135 for Coda and has offered to donate any money from the sale of his CDs over the coming weeks to Coda too, which is a very generous gesture. Thank you so much to everybody who joined us on Facebook Live and donated to our charity.
If you would like to buy a CD, you can purchase them from Owain’s Tantmusic.com website click here
If you missed Owain’s performance or would like to watch it again, you can still see it on Facebook click here
MUSIC QUIZ THIS WEEK
There is no Live music on Friday, as it’s Good Friday, but, instead, we will be hosting an Easter Music Quiz on Thursday.
There will be 40 music questions, all (loosely) linked to an Easter or confectionary theme, covering music from across many decades and genres.
You’ll be marking your own score sheets, so no prizes – all you need is a pen and paper.
This event is free but, as with all of our Live events, we will be fundraising for Coda Music Trust. Please donate via the donate button if you can, to help ensure we are still here to continue our great work in the future.
You’ll be able to find this quiz on the Coda Music Trust Facebook page www.facebook.com/CodaMusicTrust/
at 7pm on Thursday 9th April
Our tutors continue to amaze us with their talent. This week Deborah Jordanreleased her song “I’ll See You Again” on YouTube.
The song is an incredibly beautiful and moving tribute to her mum. Click here to take a look at the stunning video.
To keep you all entertained, Stuart Jebbitt has created a TV Theme Music Quiz. It’s just for fun for you to do at home. See if you can identify all 10 themes. We’ll provide clues next week if you’re still struggling!
In addition, James Arthur has created some Ukulele Lockdown Strum-alongs.
For all of our Kids Ukulele Band Players or aspiring young ukulele players out there, click here for a link to James’ strum along video.
For all of our previous adult Beginners, Improvers or Ukulele Players click herefor a mighty strum along with James (where he’s also joined by his dad!).
We hope you all enjoy some of the music activities in this update. Keep playing and keep practicing.
We look forward to the day we can reopen our doors and continue to support local people, as we have done for the past 20 years. In the meantime, please support our fundraising events and consider donating if you can.
You can always donate via our Just Giving page click here
