Mix and Match Concert

 

Sunday 17th March 7- 8pm St. Mary's Church, Thatcham

Everyone will be warmly greeted to this varied concert, whether you are a music lover or would like an hour of entertainment do come along!

No need to book, there should be lots of room but do arrive about 15 minutes early to have some pizza (provided by the lovely Italian Bella Luna Restaurant along the High Street) and also a chat.  We always love the time before a concert as the prospect of performing gives a special air and meeting some of the audience adds a relaxed feel to the evening.

The music will hopefully cover some of your favourites and if you are bringing younger children along you will be pleased to know that nothing is very long. We are very keen to include younger people so do not worry if they make a little noise (during the applause is best but our grandchild will be there and at just one year old it is not always possible to stay quiet!).

Do ring if you have anything specific to ask, sadly we are not able to reserve seats but if you are there early there will be more choice!

You may have noticed a giraffe on the poster, we are bringing ours along, if you have one bring it along as well!

See you there.

We thought that you might like to know a little bit about us! We have been married for 31 years and have 3 grown up children and 1 grandchild.

Daniel has always taught music and together  for 7 years we ran the Music Department at Elstree School until deciding to teach and run course from home a few years ago..Originally Sandra trained as a nurse and was a Theatre Sister (many years ago now!).

Daniel teaches the piano mostly but also music theory, A Level and GCSE music. He also plays the organ and runs Enharmonic Choir. Currently he is also working in the Downs School helping with their A Level Music.

Sandra helps with all the above as well as teaching singing and piano. Until just recently (for almost 20 years) was Chair of Directors of the Kennet School Academies Trust and is now starting to enjoy having a little more time for her love of art and cooking!

Both of us have current enhanced DBS checks.

Parent Feedback

Maddy gained distinction in her grade 5 theory exam - 90 marks. She is thrilled, needless to say, and so are we.

We are very happy to have found Soundscool and Alex would be in no way ready for his exam without you. It is pleasing to discover something on the internet which is as good as it claims to be and he has had a wonderful time!

We have just got Alexander's results.... 94%! Thank you so much for all you did for us..he knew nothing of Grade 5 theory before October half term. You prepared him very well. We are so glad we found you!

The boys really enjoyed their time with you and felt totally enthusiastic about the whole experience. They both loved your approach and the warm welcome you gave them, and were up bright and ready for day two without prompting.

"For our son music theory was something to dread before coming on your course, but now he is so confident and he has found inspiration in understanding the theory behind the music he plays. His organ teacher has noticed the difference in his understanding, so this experience has enriched him and helped him beyond just the exam."
