We were delighted when our book, How to Create a Successful Music Ensemble, was shortlisted for the Best Print Resource award at the inaugural Music Teacher Awards for Excellence – and we’re even more delighted to have won!
The awards were presented by Classic FM’s Margherita Taylor at a swish black tie affair on Wednesday 20th March at the Barbican after the first day of the Music Education Expo. Author Patrick Gazard was there to collect the award.
