Many people have aspired to play a musical instrument but have never had the opportunity to try. This is your opportunity. The beginners’ workshops cater for people who have never played before or have a little knowledge of the basics.
The advanced workshops are an opportunity for those who can already play and want to improve their skills.
There will be a group of talented teachers to run the workshops. If you are able to assist in the running of the workshops, your help would be greatly appreciated.
