Gigs galore: Film, Circus, Music and Tap dance

Music notes clipart

Is it possible for me to learn a piano Latin jazz number, based on a Oscar Peterson version, and two songs in time for the debut performance of a new tap company? How about trying my hand at compering for a circus cabaret? Now seems like a good time to take on my first ever physically demanding, feature film job. And while I’m at it, why not throw in a couple of solo guest featured tap dance gigs? Let’s not forget about learning and playing the keyboard in a band for a music gig at the RFH. All in just over one month? Go!
