  1. Please ensure that you have sufficient drinks and food for the course each day and also for the day in Ebbw Vale.


  1. It is very important that you inform me if you are not able to attend the course. For those who have already let me know there is no need to reply.


  1. For those students who are in university I would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance for the Monday and Tuesday of the course. I realise that you may not be able to miss lectures but I would expect you to make every possible effort to perform in the concert on the Tuesday evening. This will be our last chance to perform together before the Royal Albert Hall on 5th November!

I will be emailing out parts for ‘Vesuvius’ for you to practice at home, so keep an eye out for emails!
