Yamaha Club Magazine: June/July 2021


As our latest edition of the Yamaha Club Magazine leaves the distributor we’ve just been given the go-ahead to meet with friends and family inside pubs and restaurants and I, for one, can’t wait to do just that. Let’s hope nothing else nasty comes along and spoils it all. It’s great that things are moving forward and we’re starting to feel quite excited at the prospect of the Yamaha Club Weekend actually going ahead this year. I do hope so because, now that we’ve begun the process of booking performers and teachers, it’s all starting to feel very real. Meanwhile, we’ve another bumper issue of the mag with plenty of tips, tunes and tutorials to keep you busy for the next couple of months. I hope you’ll enjoy it! Kind regards – Glyn
