Dead Question OBS Final
Tomorrow, Dead Question have our OBS Semi-Final gig at The Musician, so today, we had a practice with the intention of writing a short intro jam and I came up with the idea of editing the Into Glue opening riff. Now its sounding awesome and I’m really looking forward to the gig. Really hoping we can make it through to the final, and if we do, hope to see you there on Sat 7th May…
Four Days! On Saturday Dead Question play the OBS Semi-Final at The Musician and we would really love your support, we’ve been working really hard on this set and think you’ll love it, there may even be a new tune or two… Also, Blues De La Ceaux have an acoustic gig on Thursday at The Shed, which should be a nice fluffy one, so feel free to come and watch us by candle light, and here’s the last video from The Cookie:
Dead Question had a real nice time playing sort of acoustic at Attenborough Arts Centre last Tuesday and’ll be looking forward to seeing you at our OBS Semi-Final, before that though, I’m playing with Beth Morris at this: We Steal Flyers, Scribble Victory, Joseph Knight and Beth Morris@The Shed and with Blues De La Ceaux at this: Blues De La Ceaux Unplugged, and have a video…
Dead Question are playing an acoustic set at Attenborough Arts Centre tomorrow afternoon at 12:45 – 1:45, which should be good fun! again, unfortunately the gig with Beth Morris Music on Thursday has been cancelled, we’re very sorry for that, but we have another gig at The Shed on Wed the 13th and would love your support!
Dead Question (Acoustic) at Attenborough Arts Centre
I got some more in-depth feedback from the students of my masterclass in the form of a survey. Overall feedback was quite positive, but there were a few areas it seemed could be improved on like planning to maintain fluidity throughout the lesson and providing more learning materials like videos. I felt like there was a lot of video use, so maybe using more varied forms of media like audio, notation and text would be beneficial. I could have also used more activities to aid the planning of it.
I’m really grateful to the students for coming along and taking part in my class and for taking the time to give me some feedback. This has been a great experience and one I hope to learn from and use to my advantage to maybe deliver more classes in future.
