I just wanted to wish all my students past and present a very Happy New Year. It has been a very challenging year for all of us but I wanted to thank my students for their hard work and successes through out the year. Myself and my students seemed a little sceptical about on line lessons when we first went into lockdown but I must say that the process has worked brilliantly. Apart from the very rare internet glitches, dogs knocking cameras over and broken guitar strings everyone has shown their resilience and willingness to give it a go. After talking with students almost all of them have said how quick and easy it is to have their lessons online now, what with juggling life and work. With students receiving a PDF of the lesson material as well as the option to record the lessons the overwhelming response has been very positive. My students have still managed to reach their personal goals as well as continue taking their online Trinty grades. Having only done a handful of gigs this year I very much look forward to when I can get back out on the road and play some music but until then take care and Happy New Year.
It was a quite year however there were a few highlights as you can see. The year started with the Emily Capell tour and ended with a wonderful Christmas concert organised by the brilliant Torchlight Productions.
Take care and Happy New Year.
