After speaking to him the previous week about some of his and my favourite music he looked through his own and his family's collections of sheet music and picked out various different pieces and books for me. These pieces include 'Stormy Weather' (a 1933 song written by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler), 'As time goes by' (by Herman Huffield), and a piano selection from Rodgers and Hammerstein's 'South Pacific'.
After looking through a few so far I'm excited to use these when playing the piano at House of Fraser but also using them for teaching purposes, I'm sure some of my students will enjoy them too.

One student is a total beginner and the other has a few years experience so there will be a nice mix of abilities.
Got the 2010-2013 ABRSM woodwind syllabus too so its exciting times on the Saxophone front.

I had a lovely chat with a very nice gentleman who requested 'Moonglow' (by Will Hudson, Eddie de Lange, and Irving Mills) which is a favourite of mine too. We talked for a few minutes about different artists and pieces, including 'Forgotten dreams' by Leroy Anderson which was another of his favourites and some Big band music including Glenn Miller and others similar.
He then told me about the 'Xaphoon' also known as the 'The Pocket sax'. He is a saxophone player too and recently got one of these 'Xaphoons', which is a kind of reeded recorder that sounds somewhere between a saxophone and clarinet (the website suggests.) It looks really great and compact, I'm very interested and is definite worth a try.
Take a look for yourself:

There was a summer fayre at New North Road Baptist Church in Huddersfield between 11am and 3pm last week.
The church invited people to come in and look around and see what goes on. They provided hot drinks and cakes and a light lunch.
I was performing some music at different slots throughout the day, doing a Kids slot and an all age slot. I played some background saxophone and piano music throughout the day, performing songs like 'Everything I do I do it for you' Bryan Adams, and 'Endless love' Lionel Richie and Diana Ross, amongst other well known tunes.
Was great to have a day full of music and getting to play for various groups of people.
