Parents and Students,
As the year comes to a close I would like to thank the students
for their hard work and commitment. Thank you to the parents for
supporting music education and to all the teachers for their dedication
research project and thesis for my Masters is well under way. It
has, however, been a challenge to find enough time in the day to
deal with everything on the level that I would like to, so apologies
if I have been delayed in responding to you in any way. I still
have one more year to go so thank you in advance for your patience.

2010 we will be celebrating CTAM’s
10 Year Birthday with
a variety of exciting events such as: workshops, concerts and master
classes. A possible trip to attend a music festival in Europe
is being looked at as is offering international guitarist and teacher
Gregory Newton an opportunity to perform
and give some Master Classes for CTAM. Dr Newton is President
of the American Guitar Society and Director
of the International Concert Series. He is also on
the board of the Guitar Foundation of America. Last
year he was awarded a Doctorate in Music performing
some of my ‘African-inspired’ compositions. He
is a wonderful personality, teacher and performer.

year we will have executive accountants V Swemmer & Mc
Innes Assoc. to oversee policy and financial matters. The fee
structure and methods of payments, however, will largely remain unchanged
for 2009. The annual fee increase which comes into effect next year
has been kept to a minimum of close to 7%. For details on fee options

I wish you all the very best over the festive season and look forward
to seeing you again in the New Year.
