Is there a place for music in a child’s education? Come and join us for a talk by Andrew Maddocks FRSA MA LRAM on ‘growing up with music’.

Andrew, after time as a cathedral chorister at Peterborough and as a music student at Cambridge, has spent all his working life in music education: first as a secondary school teacher in Kent and Hertfordshire, then latterly as an adviser for Somerset County Education followed by a period working as a freelance consultant.

We very much hope that you will take the opportunity to meet and network with local Fellows. Guests of Fellows are always very welcome. An optional contribution on the door of £5 will help to defray costs.

If you have any queries about the event, please contact Keith Read FRSA: [email protected].
