We have put a lot of work into selection of music and have chosen works that range from easy to more challenging, from classical to modern and from serious to a bit of a laugh. In order to cheer us all up and encourage us all to keep practising Paul will send you his selection each month.
We are currently investigating whether it might be possible to do some virtual practice do please keep monitoring our facebook page and website.
Everyone and stay safe and healthy.
