A marvellous charity!
I had wanted to work for MMCL for a long time but due to my work commitments with Welsh National Opera. I was never free on a Tuesday. When I first walked into the hall of the Church of the Resurrection, I immediately felt at home. I was warmly welcomed by Jan and James and a violin was thrust into my hands to be tuned! I never looked back!
The first thing that struck me was that the children got on so well with each other and were so keen to make music together. Because of Jan’s and James’ efforts it has all been made fun, which is how music lessons should be. One can see progress from week to week and Jan provides an exciting mix of Repetoire. I have to admit that I can’t wait for Tuesdays to come round!
We’ve done some excellent concerts and audiences have been visibly moved by the children’s endeavours.
We went to Llangrannog last year and it was lovely to spend more time with the children; having our meals together and having free time to play and chat.
I hope more and more children will have access to this marvellous charity.
