Mark Walton visit and Concert
Mark and Jo Walton visited Coonabarabran High School on Thursday 21 November. Mark has been teaching ten students via Skype every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during lunch time since the beginning of last year and on Thursday, the students had another opportunity to have a face-to-face lesson with Mark. The students – Megan Hain, Ellah Bowmaker, Olivia Meier, Clover Hippisley, Monique Bragg, Riley Fleming, Declan Eshman, Caleb Smith and Alexander McWhirter – had a lesson with Mark followed by a lesson with his wife Jo for some extra input.
In the evening, these nine students as well as other CHS music students performed in a concert in the school hall. There were some lovely performances and all students should be congratulated on not only their performances, but also their preparation and commitment. All the students who participated did the school proud. Mark ended the concert with a beautiful performance of some pieces included in one of the books he published. A huge thank you goes to Mark and Jo for stopping in Coonabarabran on their trip which was supposed to be from Sydney to Mudgee, and for all their time and effort in working with the students.
