Usually August is extremely quiet in music shops, and it's true many of our regulars disappear for a few weeks. However, behind the scenes, in the workshop, David has been slogging away remorselessly preparing hundreds of instruments for the new term, especially for Wider Opportunities programmes. All this on top of trying to run a top-quality instrument repair service. Time the poor chap had a holiday.
Meanwhile, in the shop we're not only getting ready for the September Recorder Rush, but the music for Christmas shows for schools will be coming out onto the shelves any minute now. We've already had the first orders for Carols for Choirs. Don't forget, the next Bank Holiday is Boxing Day!
Over the summer we've said goodbye to Dan Bayliss, who leaves us to study Saxophone in Birmingham, and we've had some new faces join us, and we hope you'll enjoy meeting them soon.
