The travel part of Al's Finzi Scholarship Award project (researching Schoenberg's creative teaching methods, particularly with "less able masters") has come to a close.
The insights gained from studying the background, original manuscripts and typescripts of Schoenberg's Models for Beginners in Composition are already informing his teaching, thanks to assistance from the Finzi Trust, the Arnold Schoenberg Center and Andrew Bendefy.
Look out for Al's Schoenberg day at Dillington House in April.

Evening classes

Al & Ray's latest acoustic guitar evening classes for Adult beginners and improvers are well under way.
This time by popular demand there is a distinctly bluesy feel with some finger-picking and improvisation. As to be expected there is also the usual very practical application of music theory...and the coffee and biscuits seem to be particularly good!

Dillington course

There's still a couple of places left so time to book up for Al & Ray's 'No Boundaries Band' course at Dillington House at the end of October.
The tuition is nearly as good as the meals!! & the setting is just fantastic.
