At the age of four, I started learning classical guitar. Each Saturday I
would walk down two houses to Ms.Patane. The whole day was dedicated to
creativity and the arts. From 9am we'd play guitar in preparation of my
Conservatorium examinations until lunch time. Chips, salad, steak. Then
until 4pm we would paint and draw alittle, as well as music theory.
When ever there was a recital or classical guitar concert in town she would
put me into her pale blue Ford Cortina, and off we'd go. I under went this
private tuition until the age of 12. I loved Ms.Patane, to this day my fondest,
most enduring memories are of those Saturdays.
I dedicate this piece to her wonderful giving, nurturing nature. I visit
her when ever I'm able.
