I have been a member of Victoria music for over two years now. When I started, I was lacking in self confidence and wanted to meet people who also had a love for music. I was pleased by the friendly reception and encouraged by Rob to be better than I thought I was. In the last two years I have been an active member of the group and have surprised myself by being on stage, both with the adults and youngsters under Rob’s tutelage. My membership of V.M.L. has also benefited my family, friends and neighbours who have attended performances at the Brindley and have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences, as have I, their support. It has been my most enjoyable time for many years and that is largely due to my fellow members and Rob’s professional, yet friendly approach to musical direction.
