Good news – I’ve been awarded two scholarships!! One is a grant from the Adastra Foundation and the other is a University of Auckland scholarship which runs over 3 years. I applied for five different scholarships earlier in the year and it was a lot of work but evidently worth it. This support is going to put me in a far better financial position for this first year of university and the following two. So very exciting!
Finished up the final mix-down of Divine with Shane and sent that up to York Street where it’s currently being mastered. Took a lot of work but really happy with the final product! Got some excellent feedback on it from Mike Chunn, CEO of Play it Strange, so yay!
Also, I’m sitting my Grade 8 ABRSM piano exam on Tuesday 30th October. Not long to go so I have been working very very hard. I was sick over the long weekend which put me on the back foot a little bit but I’m feeling more confident that I can pull it off now so wish me luck! :) It’s been a long 10 months of pretty intense practice and preparation and it’s all come down to this single 30-minute exam, so praying it goes well!
Anyway, will post again after I’ve got through the next couple of busy weeks, with school finishing and numerous performances!
