“As a nine year old I was exposed to the sound of the guitar, from then on right up to the present day it has been, and continues to be a journey of wonder and delight .Playing a musical instrument is good for your mental health. It can calm you in times of trouble and is in many ways a form of meditation. Being deeply moved by a piece of music can in my opinion be a spiritual experience. Making music can be life changing and inspiring. For that reason I feel privileged to be a patron of this worthwhile charity”.
