Hi Len, I remember it the same as you posted. We were very lucky to have such teachers, especially the likes of John Evans and Peter Whitworth and several others. I remember being in class with you and coming to your house in Clevedon Road for music lessons where you taught me to read bass, I also remember your brother George and your mum and dad too. It came as no surprise to hear of your musical success with the talent you have always had. I enjoyed listening to your Beatles piano arrangements. These songs I also enjoy playing or try to play at least. Wishing you all the best and 'Here's to Oakfield' Robert Pattison
