In a week I will be in Auckland, living at University Hall (home to over 400 students) and orientation week will be in full swing! I’ve been gradually sorting and packing my things up but the final packup will take place this Friday and Saturday! We’re taking two suitcases plus my keyboard and my guitar. Yikes.
Over the last wee while I’ve had a couple of great gigs – one in town for the Summer Street Beat series run by the council and just last week I played at the restaurant Hangar 58 on Valentines Day! I got a lil photo in the paper for the Street Beat gig which you may have seen. Now my PA system is all packed away in my wardrobe and it probably won’t come out until next summer as I’ll be busy studying up in Auckland! In case anyone’s interested I’ll list the papers I’ll be doing.
Mus 119: Introduction to Music Technology
Mus 180: Creative Practice in Pop Music 1
Mus 182: Pop Music Performance Skills 1
Mus 184: Pop Music Theory and Aural 1
Theology 101G: The Bible in Popular Culture (We have to choose two general education papers over the course of the degree, and this one fitted into my timetable and I was interested in it!)
Mus 181: Creative Practice in Pop Music 2
Mus 183: Pop Music Performance Skills 2
Mus 185: Pop Music Theory and Aural 2
So yeah exciting times ahead. :D Will probably do another post after classes have started in early March!
