February 2020 Newsletter

The holidays are over, school is back and summer has well and truly hit! I am currently in love with my ceiling fan and water spray bottle (don’t tell Andrew!) but am very happy knowing we are far enough away from any bushfire threats which have ravaged Australia this season. 

We had to make an unexpected road trip to Central NSW for a funeral last month and while we weren’t close enough to any fires to feel threatened, we could see the devastation they have caused, the dryness in general (even the cactuses on the sides of the road had died) and felt what it was like to live with heavy smoke for a few days.  My heart goes out to everyone who has been affected and I offer huge thanks to the incredible volunteers who have sacrificed so much to keep us all safe.  Andrew and I have been honoured to perform some gigs with RMT as fundraisers for bushfire aid and do our small bit for such a worthwhile cause.  

I digress, here are a few specials we’d like to offer for February so please scroll down and have a read.  As always, feel free to contact us for any inquiries or questions.  We’re here to help.

Selmer Recorder Only $6.50!!

We all know that not everyone likes to learn recorder but why make it worse with a really cheap instrument from a grocery store that doesn’t even play in tune?  Here’s one that is made by one of the worlds leading instrument manufacturers, comes with a cloth bag and cleaning rod AND plays in tune. (Yes, I tested it, much to the dog’s annoyance!!)

Whether you need a class set or just one for your primary school child, you can’t go past the value of a half-price instrument!!  Only available to 20 March while stocks last.

The ZO instruments are the latest in the range of plastic brass instruments and they are incredible.  The technology has come so far and they play extremely well.  Here’s an extremely price-effective way to add some low brass to your ensemble.  Lightweight so it’s fantastic for marching too!

Lynch & Paterson’s Pirates of Penzance

Come on a wild adventure with the opening musical of Lynch & Paterson’s 2020 Season! From swashbuckling pirates and bumbling police to a dashing hero and a beautiful maiden; Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious and most memorable score is set to capture the hearts of all!

I still can’t believe the original score doesn’t have a piano part so I’ll enjoy this show from the audience.  Will be a lovely experience!! (I’ll be there Saturday night if anyone would like to join me).
