Have YOU read The True Joy of Pulses by Alice McVeigh???
Joe Bloggs was born at a very early age. At the age of three he could lisp the alphabet, while at five he was singing (unaided) most of the Sesame Street songs! Once he was seven, Joe started the piano, which he abandoned at eight in favour of the flute, his mother having spotted that he was getting nowhere fast. By the age of 12, Joe was starring as principal flute in the Junior school's production of Oliver, where the reviewer pointed out, 'Never, in the history of Tubbenden Junior School, has a principal flute player missed fewer notes than Joe Bloggs.' By the time Joe was 14, his talent had been spotted at senior school, where he appeared as 'Flutist on the Roof' (due to no current violinist having the nerve) in the senior play. At the well-known music school Klondike Conservatory, Joe conducted his own 'Joe Bloggs orchestra', set up the 'Joe Bloggs chamber choir', and won an award for 'hardest-worked student of the decade'. Recently, Joe accepted a position as chief vocal coach and top wind clinician at the local school (Klondike High) where he is kind enough to additionally coach the hockey and gymnastics team. Now a composer, conductor, arranger, flutist, clarinetist and stalwart of the local church choir (where he decorates the first baritone section) Joe is available for work as wind clinician, vocal coach, gymnastics supremo and composition teacher, anywhere, anytime (he's completely desperate).
