Some thoughts from Susanna this May…..

This Month at SCMT we have picked the brilliant Stevie Wonder to be our Composer/Musician of the Month. Stevie Wonder is an American multi instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and record producer.

He was a child prodigy. By the age of 11 he had already mastered the piano, voice, harmonic, drums and bass and auditioned for the Motown Record Label. Maybe the greatest part of all is that he was blind from birth. What a great achievement to be able to play so many instruments at such a young age without being able to see at all.

We have a great bunch of students here at SCMT but how many of you play more than one instrument? Why not make May the month we think about starting to play another instrument. With the current instrument you are learning you have already learnt the basics, it would just be a case of learning new techniques. Lets see if we have any Stevie Wonders amongst us!
