Welcome to 2017!

Hi Folks,

Welcome to 2017 with Plainsong. I have had a glorious long summer break in cool and elegant Melbourne (and even cooler and more gorgeous Aireys Inlet) and am more than ready to get going again. I hope you are ready for new and exciting things coming your way!


As indicated in my last message to you all, my daughter Mara is planning to move out shortly (I HAD hoped it would be before January, oh well!), and we will be re-vamping the half-finished studio once she has gone. However, this will take a few weeks. Until then, I will be teaching in my lounge room, which will be a very pleasant and air-conditioned experience. Please be patient while we get the studio back up and running.

I’ve not heard about those possible lecturing opportunities this year, so I’m not sure what will happen yet, but rest assured I will give you plenty of notice should anything occur, and I’ll ensure a smooth transition between teaching days for those who may be affected.

As always, check the timetable page for your preferred time and day, and notify me ASAP. First in best dressed!

With best wishes for a great 2017 (notwithstanding THAT man as US President),
