Hey everyone, thanks for tuning in!

These last few weeks were mostly all about workshops for our students and trainee teachers. We’ve had workshops for drums, bass, keys, etc., where the students had a chance to really expand their existing knowledge and take their creativity to a new level. For the first time, teachers are working at both branches so they can share their knowledge where it’s most needed. Sometimes they work one-on-one, sometimes in small groups. Teachers work hard to develop interesting lesson material that isn’t covered in the general lesson program, to make sure these sessions are productive. Here’s a glance at one of the drum workshops:
