    Hey John - do you know what music is being covered?. I am tempted to go depending on the music choices.

    At lot will depend on the people who come along to the course. I spoken with Gareth Ritter and he will bring a wide seletion of music plus there wil be music from our own library. Consequently the music being played will be to match course personnel.

    For any who does not know Gareth he is very very good, and gives everyone confidence to blow. He will not undermine peoples confidence.

    The usual format is to learn 3 or 4 testing peices, then fill with "Fete" stuff to perform an end of course concert.
