Cobweb News 04: 05.02.16

Dear all,
There was a brilliant session last weekend with Andy looking at Sight Reading – thanks and well done to all those who took part, I think you all found it very valuable! Something we’d like to share with you, what a participant has recently said which we feel sums Cobwebs up:
“I can’t tell you how grateful I am for the loan of the violin and for Cobwebs in general. I’m having such a wonderful time learning and playing the instrument and it’s had a huge impact on my life. I couldn’t have done it without the help and encouragement of Cobwebs. It’s such a fantastic group!”
