From Alison Mathews: I’ve posted before about Gail Fischler’s wonderful Musical Adjectives Project but wanted to highlight it again as I had such a lovely response from a pupil this week. I’d asked Ben to choose adjectives that he felt characterised his Trinity Initial exam piece “Ready to Go” by Ben Crosland. What he chose were a real surprise to me! It proved to be great way to talk about how to actually communicate these words in his playing and to hear this rather shy pupil express himself. I also realised that I shouldn’t assume my pupils hear things the way I do!
