Possibly learnt something unusual this evening in my violin lesson. It would appear the great English tradition of Morris Dancing is somehow derived from the African Moors (Moorish Dancing originally I guess)! Anyway, to make my violin playing slightly more varied, my teacher has given me a broad selection of pieces to learn to play, ranging in styles from a Moorish Dance, to Big Band Jazz. Oh, and I have been given a few more scales to learn, although I’ve lost track of what I have learnt so far!
Spent the rest of the evening round Sarah’s for a barbeque, games and general fun. 🙂
