Back to appreciation, synths & lost mail

Only one school today, but after Saturday’s affair it was great to be doing a real workshop to real elementary school teachers again! This time it was 3 hours for a school that will start teaching next April and are now working out lesson plans, curricula etc. and of course running into the same problems ( pronunciation, what to teach etc.) and so invited me to help out! One of the teachers attended my seminar in May, and one had been to a city workshop where they used my video for training and had become a fan!

And the presentation was great, they went from being terrified of having to teach to seeing how easy it can be, how much support there is, why it’s so important they do this well and above all believing that they can indeed do it! So a lot of happy faces and a big round of applause at the end. Great. Thanks!

Then to Starbucks to catch up on my email, and then out to the music store to play around on the keyboards for couple of hours. I have to get some new stuff written, so why not do it in the music store where I can play loads of synths really loudly! The store are always cool as they know if I hit on something cool I’ll buy that synth. But although there were some cool stuff, it’s the Korg Triton that seems the best, but it’s just too big! I reckon soft synths are the way to go.

Then to Seattle’s Best for a another coffee and flippin eck my computer’s hard disk decides it’s going to play up and destroy my email inbox!!!! Argh. So I pulled up the back up and that was corrupted as well!! Argh!! So I had to come home and back up from DVD, which means 5 days emails are completely gone! I’m glad it’s July where I don’t get too much mail, but it’s still pretty bad.

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
