Classical Music

This particular form of music was always a bit of a mystery to me.  As a child, my wonderful infant school teacher Mrs Cooper always tried to open our ears to many forms of music, and as a result, I started learning the guitar, attended folk festivals and, perhaps most importantly, attended a classical concert.

I Value the Arts

Posted via email from Mr Plug’s posterous
