November Update!

November has been busy as we gear up for the festive season! Read on to see what we've been up to

This month our regular concert series featured Mimi Chow & Aaron Le Maistre with Kathryn Stott performing French Piano Classics

We also hosted a wonderful Charity Performance with Alan Clark from Dire Straits fundraising for Olympias Music Foundation. Alan's sold-out concert raised a whopping £1,035 for OMF - the equivalent of 52 music lessons, or music lessons for 1.75 OMF children for a whole year!

Finally, we supported an awareness campaign by Prevent Breast Cancer in Manchester Piccadilly station. They made fantastic use of our street piano there, and we also provided the PA for Suzie Rubin who performed on the day.

These Cort G250SE are very versatile instrument, suiting many different playing styles. They also come in a range of colours!

Squier Affinity Series Jaguar Bass

This medium scale Squier bass is great for those starting out on their bass journey, and this bass features a Fender voiced humbucker pickup for a massive tone, and a very comfortable C shaped neck for ease of playability. A perfect gateway to all things bass!
