04/05/2020 A Letter to All Our Students
We know practicing at home isn’t the same as being at the studio.
We know it’s hard to practice full out in your living room, bedroom or garden and that this is not possible in some cases.
We know that you might be feeling a little or a lot rusty despite your best efforts.
We know you might be having those “I’m rubbish” moments at home.
