What Our Members Are Saying...

" I find this group so supportive. As an adult musician I have existed in a vacuum for a long time. Now I have this monthly opportunity to share with others in the same boat. I can’t tell you what a difference that has made. "

Maestro Member

" The analysis of music we’ve looked at has been great and I love Gareth’s idea of ‘getting inside the mind of the composer’. It’s helped me understand so much more and I look forward to the next Maestros meeting each month. "

Maestro Member

" Just a note to say huge thanks to Gareth for reviewing my composition. He has a real knack for finding all the positives then manages to highlight the problems in a really sensitive way. It’s really helped me. "

Maestro Member

Hi, I’m Gareth and I'm passionate about developing ‘the all round musician’.

I’ve spent the past 40 years as a professional musician. Time and again I’ve met people who have expressed a wish to be part of a musical community in which they can learn and share their music, as performers, composers, arrangers, as students of harmony etc.

Maestros is an enactment of a vision to provide exactly this kind of community. A supportive, positive forum in which people can learn, share their musical progress, and be part of a musical circle. Apart from the associated benefits of membership, our monthly livestreams form the centrepiece of Maestro membership.
