All of our students receiving individual lessons use a Student Music Diary. In this book the tutor will make notes on lesson progression, tips for advancement and areas to work on for the next lessons. Well, we are revamping the book and we would like you, the community to help us design a new cover and look for the diary.
If you love to colour in, doodle, mix mud or digital photography then why not give it a go! The theme is MUSIC!
Make sure you include your name and contact details when you submit your entry.
Send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30th April.
The entry that is selected will brandish the new student music diary and receive 5 free tickets to any concerts this year!
