Yamaha Club Magazine: April/May 2021

Happy Easter!

We’re taking the opportunity of the Easter break to give our office a much needed makeover. However, most of our computers are now tucked away and I’m unable to provide the usual welcome page to the latest edition. The April/May magazine is out and should be reaching subscribers as I write. I’ll update this page as soon as we’re up and running again. The free downloads for subscribers will be made available later this month – but do send in your requests as usual so that you can receive them as soon as they are ready. The office is closed but will re-open on Monday 12th April. Meanwhile I will be keeping an occasional eye on emails and orders and will respond if I can. Thank you, as ever for bearing with us. Kind regards – Glyn

Find Glyn Madden on You Tube

For the past year I’ve been adding videos to YouTube to showcase some of the software I’ve produced for the ‘Registration Builder’ and ‘Music Chef’ workshops in the magazine. Hopefully this collection will continue to grow over the coming year. If you get time to visit my YouTube Channel please subscribe (free) and give the video a ‘like’ if you’ve enjoyed it. Thank you!

In a recent magazine we mentioned Penny Weedon’s new venture with online ‘tutorials’ about music – based on the countless workshops she’s presented around the country during her career. You’ll find her ‘Music For Good’ on YouTube by clicking the link.
