In an open letter, John Woodford replies to some recent criticism about the content of MusicTeachers.co.uk's Online Journal.



  "I'm looking forward to five years' time when I go back again; and I'll just keep on coming as long as they want me to!" Jazz legend Dave Brubeck talks to us about his work as one of the world's most prolific composers.
  “I’ve never written anything when I’ve thought afterwards, ‘Crumbs, I wish I’d never done that’; I’ve always tried to write music that is approachable and unpretentious.” Sir Richard Rodney Bennett talks to MusicTeachers.co.uk
  At eight, he gave his first professional performances. At fourteen, he played to President Clinton, and now, at the grand old age of sixteen, pianist Taylor Eigsti is taking the jazz world by storm. MT.co.uk reports.
  Into Practice: Choir Training for Beginners: In the final part of his series, Jeffery Makinson provides practical tips on rehearsal techniques and how to approach teaching music to a fledgling choir.
  Review Article: Ian le Prévost examines two sets of recordings of the complete organ works of French organist-composer Marcel Dupré (1886-1971), released recently on Guild and Naxos.



  Continuing our series in which we talk to young musicians to find out about their work and aspirations, we talk to Dinuk Wijeratne as he prepares to begin postgraduate study at the Juilliard School of Music.
