Guitar Lesson Update

Sunday, 24 November 2013, 9:04am

Hi Everyone

It's coming up last week of lessons for most of my schools. I finished up with Manchester St School this week with an extended session involving the guys playing the first ever gig on the new school outside stage !!!  Great job Lily Grace and Abby (Dawson and Arwen we missed you ! )  I know Todd Lochlan and Luke from St Jo's were playing at their prizegiving on Wednesday night and I bet you guys did well also.   At PNINS the guitar students were going to do a rendtition of Feliz Navidad today (I wanna wish you a merry Christmas). Unfortunately I had to work out of town today so missed that performance. I'm sure you guys did a great job ! I hope the school got into it and sang along ? Next week Jak and Jack are playing guitar as part of the school production on Wednesday night. Awesome to see students stepping out and using your skills in these ways. I'll post some photos on the website soon.

Have a great weekend and will see most of you next week for the final catch up for the year.

See ya

Hi Craig Elton and myself (along with our other two children) would like to thank you immensely for the fantastic guitar concert you held a couple of weekends ago. We are not a "musical" family and having Charlie being so interested in the guitar has meant we have had to become interested by default. We have supported his weekly lessons and enjoyed listening to him practise (especially on his electric guitar). We couldn't have enjoyed the concert more and my husband said he would have "gone again the next night". So there is some feedback from some "unmusical" folk who really appreciated the time effort and high quality of your show. Thank you so much.

Hi Craig Jayden has really loved his lessons with you this year so we are wanting to re-enrol with you for next year, if you have a place for Jayden and for his older sister Mya that would be great.

Just a quick e-mail to say we would like Luke to continue with guitar lessons at Rongotea school next year. Also we would like to say that we thought the end of year concert was fantastic. Jason (Luke’s dad) was so inspired he has gone out and brought new strings for his guitar and intends to have a “play around again” (maybe he can practice with Luke!) Thanks again Tania

Hi Craig I have attached a video of you & Jacob playing "I Walk the Line". We are so proud of Jacob, he did so well. To be on stage playing in front of an audience with just the two of you is not something he would have been able to do a year ago. Chris & I want to thank you for everything you have taught Jacob. He has come a long way with his guitar and really enjoys it. We know he will keep it up. Thanks again. Regards Nikki
