Workshop and masterclass 

with Mary King

Sunday 14 May 2017

Guildford County School, GU2 4LU


Our development day this year will be held in Guildford County School again, which will hopefully avoid problems with South Eastern trains!

The acclaimed teacher and vocal coach Mary King will spend the day in a masterclass/workshop setting, working with students of teachers from our area in all styles of music. Caroline Jaya-Ratnam will be accompanying all day so teachers can fully benefit from watching Mary work.

Mary, one of our honorary life presidents, is always a favourite speaker and this more practical day will make full use of her great talents.

Light refreshments are included in the fee but not lunch, which should be provided by the participants.

Early booking for places with a student is recommended as they are bound to be at a premium. Music copies for Caroline should be sent to local representative Jan Spooner Swabey by the end of April.

Timings and costs to be confirmed.

Contact South East Representative Jan Spooner Swabey with any queries, or book online and pay by credit card, debit card or Paypal. We will email members to let them know when online booking is available.

Jan Spooner Swabey South East Area Representative

Area Representative: Jan Spooner Swabey

With an enormous area to cover, ranging from the Isle of Wight to Norfolk, I will not promise to meet you all in your home town but I hope we will meet up at a conference at some time whilst I am your area rep! As I live in Sussex, I would welcome input from those of you in East Anglia and Kent and Essex for development ideas that you think will work and will try to organise an event nearer your part of our area.

In our area we have all types of teachers with a variety of expertise so the more we can come together, formally or informally, to exchange views, difficulties and successes the better. The Pod coordinators will aid in this (there has already been one such informal get together) so do make use of us all. We want our organisation to be thriving and relevant to us all.

Do contact me with anything you feel I may be able to help with and I look forward to seeing some of you at our next conference if not a local event or Development Day. Jan Spooner Swabey
