Welcome to our Gloucestershire Music family!

This page is where we want you to be able to see, hear and find out more about all of our team and our tutors.  What instruments do they play?  What are their roles at Gloucestershire Music?  Some even reveal some facts that might surprise you!  We hope it might help those who are thinking about joining a group feel more at ease if they can learn a little more about the tutors who will be leading and supporting them.
