My friend, and former East Lothian guitar colleague, Richard Knowles, has organised a visit to Portobello High School by Allan Neave this Friday (26 Oct). In addition to teaching guitar at the RSAMD, Allan is also Director of the Dundee International Guitar Festival. Here is a breakdown of Friday’s events:
1:30 – 2:45 Ensemble Masterclass
2:45 – 3:00 Break – light refreshments provided
3:00 – 5:00 Individual Masterclass – students of Grade 5 and above playing – all others watching and learning
5:00 – 7:00 Break (refreshments not provided for this break)
7.00 Concert given by Allan Neave – also to include ensemble item and soloist(s) from individual master-class
The event is open to students from other schools and authorities. An all-day student ticket costs £7.00.
The concert is open to the public at a cost of £6 (£4). Map/directions here. (type Portobello High School into text box – you can then enter your own postcode to get directions).
Rather than post contact details for Richard here, may I request that anyone hoping to attend or requiring further information get in touch by commenting on this blog. I will then pass on contact information directly to your email (not shown on this blog but a requirement for commenting).
I have seen Allan play many times and can guarantee a fine performance.
