Hi Everybody,

So this day next week we’ll all be full of turkey, ham and sprouts (maybe!). Although it was our theme for November, Christmas is traditionally the time to catch the best movie musicals on the television. Here are a few to watch out for:

The Muppets (RTÉ 1, Christmas Eve, 1.40pm)

Mary Poppins (BBC 1, Christmas Eve, 5.00pm)

The Wizard of Oz (Virgin Media 1, Christmas Day 4.05pm)

Les Miserables (Channel 4, Thursday Dec 27, 12.00am), maybe a bit late, this one!

Annie (RTÉ 1 New Year’s Eve, 9.40am)

There are also quite a few music related films & programmes on over the next few weeks. Here are a couple to keep an eye out for. Some just for the night owls!

Carols from the Castle (RTÉ 1, Christmas Eve, 9.20pm

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week-The Touring Years (Channel 4, Christmas Day 12.15am)

This Is Spinal Tap (TG4 Christmas Day 12.40am)

If you’ve spotted any good ones that you think we should mention (and, indeed, watch), please let us know.

Now, to business. Here is an important reminder for you: if you want gift vouchers for your loved ones, you need to let us know early this week, so we can post them to you! We understand that quite often gift vouchers are a last minute thing when you can’t think of anything else, but not ours. Ours are top of your list, right? So don’t delay!

We’ve had loads of entries to our Christmas colouring competition, but the winners won’t be chosen until Friday, so there’s still time to enter. Remember, there are gift vouchers up for grabs in each of the three categories.

The current term ends this Saturday, however, we are currently taking bookings for the new term, beginning on January 7th. Our slots for both individual and group lessons are filling up fast, so get in touch now to book your place.

So, that’s it for now. Remember, ear training is quite an important part of musical education. I’d suggest putting that training to use next week to listen out for sleigh bells during the night!

Merry Christmas,

Thanks for reading,

Until next time…
