We had a really good session again today, we really are improving individually and as a group. Despite being one down @tenorviol did a sterling job to ensure we had sufficient parts to make sense of the tunes and keep us on track..

I really do enjoy these sessions and feel like I've really worked at the end of them

Thanks guys :)

I can't tell you all how pleased and happy I was with the effort and performance from everyone today. I'm not a music teacher or a tutor... but I have been round the block a few times one way or another... The guys played right through pieces which they hadn't seen for a while and which in the past they had many struggles with. They gave a credible rendition of a new piece which they were sight-reading and got to grips with some thing we'd only done once before. The big thing for me is that they're listening and hearing what is going on around them and sorting problems out for themselves. Doesn't stop me worrying about whether I am best qualified to exhort and cajole....

Today's motivational technique: get it right or I sing in Italian...

Qualified enough, you do well to put up with us and have the patience of a saint, we are also are lucky to have @chadders as stand in when your busy musical life takes you elsewhere :)

I knew you were going to sing, as I said it helped my timing so much more too...
