I Am A #Freelance #MusicTeacher |

Hey hey hey!

Sooo I AM A MUSIC TEACHER! I teach the Alto Saxamaphone 😛 and the flute! I teach the ABRSM syllabus (follow this link to find out more). ABRSM (Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music is the exam board of The Royal Schools of Music (follow this link to find out more). It’s music exam season and I put a student in for an exam! It’s totally great going to the exam venues when you’re not doing the exams ! It was stressful as a child. As I was not accompanying my student I did not have to go but I wanted to be a supportive teacher so I went!

If you would like music lessons head to my other website www.ridethefaderproductions.com and drop me an email at catherine@ridethefaderproductions.com !

I’ve got to say the Enfield exam centre was the nicest exam centre I have ever been to!

They have a nice practice area!

There were really nice chairs! It was in a vicarage, I had a lovely conversation with the lady at the centre, she goes to the church that the vicarage is attached to and was delightful to talk to!

They had free syllabuses on the table and other free pamphlets that I helped myself to lol!

Again, if you would like music lessons head to my other website www.ridethefaderproductions.com and drop me an email at catherine@ridethefaderproductions.com !

Lots of love and keep calm in your exams!

I Wrote A Protest #Song for my #PhD – #blacklivesmatter #racism #love #relationships #christianity #Jesus #freelance #musician #worshipleader #songwriter #soundcloud

Hello Everybody,

So I’m doing my PhD in Music, doing research crossing the subject areas of Music, & Theology. My thesis will have a practical element to it and one of the things I want to do with my Thesis is confront racism within the contemporary Evangelical church. So I wrote a protest song to make it plain that God didn’t make a mistake when He made people of colour. Also, to point out that just because someone says they don’t like people of colour it doesn’t mean that they don’t “liiike” people of colour because sometimes you just can’t help who you’re attracted to even though you think that you shouldn’t be attracted to them hehe! Please follow this link for my thought’s on women of colour and the church. To enjoy more of music head to: SoundCloud – YouTube – RSS/Podcast – Blog

 

Can’t Take Your Eyes Off Me

God didn’t make a mistake when He made Brown Lives
You can tell by the way the light sparkles from Brown eyes
And if the whole wide world was to be just one kind
There would be only light to conceal that we feel the same at night
Because God didn’t make a mistake when He made Brown Lives

That’s why you can’t take your eyes off me
Culture will never tame your instinct
But love will continue to hide
Until we value Black lives
Yet still you have your eyes on me

God didn’t make a mistake when He made Brown lives
You can tell by the way Our crisp curls sparkle and shine
And if beauty could only be seen in just one kind of girl
Then the light wouldn’t flicker and dance off Brown curves
Because beauty is seen in all kinds of girl

Chorus

Kiss me kiss me again
Your love is sweeter than wine   {Song of Solomon 1:2}
But love will continue to hide
Why can’t we value Black lives?
Yet look who has their eyes on me
Looks like you can’t take your eyes off me…

Chorus

What do you think?

Hey everybody!

So I’m working on a song for my PhD project. This song is basically about the conversation I had with Jesus whilst I was on my hospital bed when I had to take time out from my studies.
Here’s a snippet of what I’m up to enjoy!

What is your problem?

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

So today is going to be a bit of an odd post but I hope it helps someone.

What in your life has become a “problem”? And by problem you know what I mean, I mean this thing has become a major distraction, you genuinely can’t carry on like this, it’s totally un-liveable, unworkable, unmanageable, it’s beginning to effect your quality of life, relationships and just needs to stop?

I’ll share with you my thing. Well, can you believe it but I really feel like God has been talking to me about me over watching cute animal videos on YouTube lol. It wasn’t until God pointed it out to me that I realised that it was a problem… I once spent an hour on YouTube watching cute videos of puppies and kittens and laughing (I’m not joking lol).

Now there isn’t anything wrong with cute animal video’s on YouTube but it was the amount of time I was wasting which was unhelpful and unhealthy lol. I just like small furry things… Anyway so I went cold turkey from cute videos and decided if I’m going on YouTube its going to be for something else, just you know, for variety? I found some other channels I like to watch, some comedy ones just to broaden my horizons! Also, I’ve started to watch things I need to watch for my job as Pastor/Director of Music at my churh (follow this link to find out more about that)/my PhD (and follow this link to find out about that) like this video from Don Moen (then follow this link or play it in the embedded player below):

Why am I telling you this? I thought it might help someone identify things in their life that have become a problem and need to stop and to let you realise it doesn’t have to be something like porn to trap you it could be something small like cute furry animal videos lol. Go through your life and think, “what am I honestly spending too much time doing?”, be honest and change. When we waste our time we are wasting God’s time. That’s all.

Here’s some calming music:
