Today I performed a song with my guitar in front of the school in assembly. At first I was extremely worried but as I progressed further into the song, I became more comfortable. Everything went to plan and I received a huge round of applause. The head-teacher and the secretary appeared curiously to see what was happening. Later in the day I was sent to Mr Bennett to collect a head-teacher’s certificate and a golden sticker (I was very proud).
The tune I played was called Pyro by the Kings of Leon. This is one of my favourite songs and I am also confident when I play it! Playing a musical instrument is very complicated at the start but once you have had a lot of practice you will improve and you will become more skilful. It takes a long time to become confident and I have been playing the guitar for 3 and a half years. I go for a private tutor every Friday in Oldham at a place called Muso’s and my teacher is called Christine! In the future my goal is to be able to fingerpick quickly and fluently. I also would like to be able to perform in front of many people without getting as nervous.
