Mike, Iain and Les's teaching is geared around the idea that, "simple does not mean easy".
"Deepening our understanding of the simple things improves our general musicianship, which provides a stronger, more centred base. From here we can enjoy and be part of a more satisfying musical experience. Playing simple things, really well, is a challenge - we practise so things become simple - when they become simple they become most useful - complexity lives within simplicity and progress can be achieved through a deeper understanding of fundamentals."
- Mike Walker, Iain Dixon and Les Chisnall, 2011
