Back feeling much better after our 5 days off. Sorry for closing! but we needed the break. I had an amazing guitar lesson whilst I was away. Always good to top up skills. It was fantastic! 4 great hours playing and drawing every nuance from the pieces. Music exam season now! good luck to all pupils!
Well Ali is very excited as she has a guitar lesson booked!! Yes I know that might be bad news for some students who think once they get to this grade or that the lessons stop! Well they can if you want, but you can always learn more- Andy Murray is the number 1 tennis player in the world but still has a coach! So Ali is excited to have a top up of motivation/technique! The shop will be closed next week Monday to Friday which allows her to escape!
Mums funeral was beautiful. We gave her a great send off that I think she would have been very happy with. Thanks to all our customers for their support. Everyone has been amazing and the offers of help have been lovely. I have been touched by peoples kind comments about mum. We are still going through a transition period, where because mum was able to cover the shop on short notice we might have some blips on opening every now and again. She will be missed in the shop for her flexibility in this regard alone!
Hi- Lessons are as normal today, but the shop will not be open until 10.30 and then will be shut for half hour at 11.30 and then at 2. Sorry- mum always covered the shop when one of us needed to be elsewhere. We haven’t quite sorted what to do without her!
Congratulations to one of my adults for passing his Grade 3 guitar with a great score!
Sorry closed today from 11am. Just for the day! Open as normal tomorrow
It is with deep sadness we have to report the passing of Lilian who both worked with us and who was Ali’s mum. She has been with us from the start, working the counter when we need her to. We are obviously coping with a range of emotions (not counting the fact we are a member of staff down). Customers have so far been lovely with their comments and we thank you.
We will be closed on Saturday 19th and then the following Thursday from 11am. Please check our facebook and this website for shop details for any closures- though we will endevour to keep to normal hours.
Thanks Mum- Sleep the good Sleep.
Well we didn’t win- but we put on a good show. We had the best flowers on our side of the street I think! (most of the flowers were on the other side of the street. Congratulations to the winners!
Just a reminder to all parents of Ali’s pupils at BVS that there will be no guitar or ukulele lessons there this week due to sports day. Lessons back to normal next week.
Well done to all my pupils at Bawdswell who played so well in assembly today. Great job- we have had some absences recently and a lost book- so for some this was a challenge and I am so proud that they got up and played so well.
