Main lessons restart from Monday 6th January (apart from the Saturday lessons which are 4th January !!)
I know that I work all the exam students really hard, but the results from the Winter 2019 session were excellent from mainly school pupils, Preliminary to Grade 8 we had 11 Distinctions and 8 Merits. The Spring 2020 session will be on Sat 28th March.
I have just finished another article for the Banjo, Mandolin and Guitar Society - this time on the differences of examining in the UK and abroad. We now have 6 students doing post Grade 8 Diplomas, and the Head of London College of Music exams has asked me to look into developing a mentoring part of the level 4-6 Teaching Diplomas (DipLCM, ALCM and LLCM).
Alistair will be the first student to soon take Grade 5 Irish or Scottish Tenor Banjo - he's also Grade 5 on Ukulele, Piano and Mandolin.
We hope to have another informal Sunday evening concert at the Cricket Club around late Feb/Early March, watch out for details.
After the success of the last event, there will also be another drum and bass day at The Drum Shack Entwistle. This time I want to open it up to rhythm guitar as well, so watch out for details.
