The RMA Presentation

The Glasgow end of the Bass Culture Research Project is doing a presentation for this week’s Royal Musical Association meeting at Glasgow Uni.  After the team-leader introduces the project, we’re each talking for ten minutes about an aspect of the project that we find interesting.  This is presenting, not teaching – it can be attended by RMA members or staff and students at the University, but it’s not part of a curriculum.

I’m puzzled, now.  The format is essentially, a progress report focusing on the interesting bits.  I don’t need anything written down apart from key names and dates.  Discussion may well arise after we’ve each presented.  But I can’t see a way of making an individual progress report anything other than me, talking.  Really not a flipped classroom opportunity!

Have renewed passport – can travel!

But in my case, it’s just needed for photographic ID, so that I can fly down to Cambridge for the IAML(UK and Ireland) Annual Study Weekend for music librarians – and whizz back in time for church on Sunday.  My choir always does a special evening service on Palm Sunday – and their confidence depends on the final rehearsal after morning worship.  You’ll deduce that I simply have to be back in Glasgow in time to play for both services!

Having sorted out the passport, I can now book the flights – well, tomorrow, anyway.  And tonight I need to finalise and distribute the order of service to all my choir members, so excuse me … I’d better get on with it!
