Louie the Tui - NZ Music Month

Wednesday, 27 May 2015, 8:52pm

Hi Everybody

Thanks to Grace and Amelia from Whakarongo who brought along a lovely book last week called "Louie the Tui" complete with a song by the same title on the back cover. Coincidentally this was the same book which our family gifted to our children's kindergarten when we left a few years back now. 

I recorded a version of the song from the book with our children and will send you a link so you can play along wtih if you would like.

Have fun :)

 

Craig

Hi Craig Elton and myself (along with our other two children) would like to thank you immensely for the fantastic guitar concert you held a couple of weekends ago. We are not a "musical" family and having Charlie being so interested in the guitar has meant we have had to become interested by default. We have supported his weekly lessons and enjoyed listening to him practise (especially on his electric guitar). We couldn't have enjoyed the concert more and my husband said he would have "gone again the next night". So there is some feedback from some "unmusical" folk who really appreciated the time effort and high quality of your show. Thank you so much.

Hi Craig I have attached a video of you & Jacob playing "I Walk the Line". We are so proud of Jacob, he did so well. To be on stage playing in front of an audience with just the two of you is not something he would have been able to do a year ago. Chris & I want to thank you for everything you have taught Jacob. He has come a long way with his guitar and really enjoys it. We know he will keep it up. Thanks again. Regards Nikki

Hi Craig Jayden has really loved his lessons with you this year so we are wanting to re-enrol with you for next year, if you have a place for Jayden and for his older sister Mya that would be great.

Just a quick e-mail to say we would like Luke to continue with guitar lessons at Rongotea school next year. Also we would like to say that we thought the end of year concert was fantastic. Jason (Luke’s dad) was so inspired he has gone out and brought new strings for his guitar and intends to have a “play around again” (maybe he can practice with Luke!) Thanks again Tania
