Live music in the local community. Bars. Cafes. Pubs.
Yesterday, I played live piano at M’S Place on the High Road, N12, as part of the North Finchley Festival (known also as the North Finchley Fest).
An internet television channel interviewed me before I began and later recorded coverage of me playing Clair de Lune by Debussy. It was a strange moment and I felt both nervous and confident as I concentrated on my breathing and the idea of the breath anchoring me, in order to remain calm and focused.
I played for about forty minutes, a mixture of classical piano, ragtime and lighter songs from the shows.
I look forward to more opportunities for taking part in events like these, participating in the local community, and gaining invaluable experience in gigging.
Till next time.
