  8. The great thing about music is its diversity and connection to everyone irrespective of gender , ethnicity, religion or class.... It has the propensity to take you back to a time gone by , or expose you to modern day culture and trends.

During my teaching career, many a minor celeb , footballer or whatever has come through my classroom on a visit....the one that gave me the most concern was Jimmy Savile......pleased to say I didn't ask for a signed picture ........
