Sharing Day 4th Nov 2017 announced

My next "Sharing Day" will be in November on Saturday the 4th at my usual venue in Mere Green Sutton Coldfield.

My chosen piece for the day will be HEARTSONG.

The format for the day will be a 10 am arrival for tea and coffee,10-30 start with a brief performance of approximately half an hour, (requests are welcomed) followed by a Q&A, a look at sections of HEARTSONG and whatever items present themselves followed a coffee break about midday, then more HEARTSONG. It is a long piece after all!

Lunch from 1 until 2 and then my special guest Becky Langan for a 30 to 40 minute chat/demo.

Becky is a brilliant young guitarist in the current school of guitarist's who use the instrument to tap and slap to create amazing effects. Becky was one of the finalists on GUITAR STAR on TV and was in Abbey Road studios with Tony Visconti the legendary record producer and one of the judges.

I’m thrilled to have her join us on November 4th, and at long last a female guitarist will grace us with her presence. I hope this will encourage more lady players to attend."

We then crack on with the more challenging bits of the days chosen piece. The afternoon will also be an opportunity to share any pieces you have with fellow group members, solo or duo, and any help or tips with composition(which may well be a piece you are currently working on) I would love to hear it!

The thing I like about the "Sharing Day" format is the very nature of its organic approach, just going with the flow of the students requirements.

It would be really good if some of you fine female players out there would like to attend, because in my experience some of the finest guitar players I have encountered over the years have indeed been women.
