By on 05 Sep 2012

After a peaceful summer, its been good to get back to Music cornwall HQ to make some noise. Having spent Monday's INSET taking part in loads of music making activities, the guitar team then spent Tuesday putting together our new demo set ready to tour around the schools.  

So far we've managed to include: Classical guitars, Electric guitars, Bass guitars, a Double Bass, Drum kit, and I'm sure I saw somebody walking around with a kitchen sink at some point...

Looking forward to a high-impact demo week!  Good luck to everyone with the new term.
