Hello everybody,

So, here's my latest update - and a lot has happened since my last post!

Firstly, I've been appointed as Organist and Choirmaster of St. Basil's Church, Bassaleg.  It's a lovely, welcoming picturesque Church not far from Newport, and has a fantastic Organ.  If you're in the area on a Sunday, morning services are at 10.00am and you would be more than welcome.

Secondly, I now have ten private pupils.  To have attracted such attention in only two months is fantastic and I am so pleased to be sharing my love and passion of music, and piano, with those in and around the area of Cowbridge.  If you or anyone you know would like to learn piano, please do recommend me as their teacher.  I am already getting incredibly positive feedback from my students and three are so happy with the job I am doing, they are now having one hour lessons.  Remember that I currently have a special offer on my teaching rates - was £15 per half hour, now only £13.50!!  Please check out the Services tab for my rates.

Thirdly, last week I was thrilled to have been contacted by the Head of Music at Barry Comprehensive who has booked me for three days to accompany for A-Level Music recitals.  It is fantastic to have made a connection with a local school, and I hope this will be the first of many bookings with the fantastic school.

Finally, my most exciting piece of new is as my new appointment as director of Llantrisant Male Voice Choir.  This is a fantastic choir who sing to an exceptionally high standard, and who have a fantastic repertoire of music.  The choir are also very welcoming, and would love any new members - check out their web-site for more details: http://www.llantrisantchoir.com.  I would like to mention, though, that in taking on Llantrisant Male Voice Choir, I had to leave the equally exceptional Cowbridge Male Voice Choir.  I would like to thank the choir, their committee and their Musical Director for all their support and encouragement over the last two months - thank you!

So, as you can see - it's busy busy busy for me!  Remember, if you or someone you know would like piano lessons book quickly!  Spaces are filling up fast.

More news (I'm sure!) to follow soon.
