*Special note to classical guitar students – Leslie and I are hoping that all our students will make the effort to come along to the Jacob Cordover concert on Sunday 26 May at 3:30pm.  We will be very disappointed if you don’t come to this world-class performance. Jacob tours all around the world and he has just completed a huge concert tour of China and the Philippines. We would also like to organize a master class earlier in the day if we can get enough numbers.
