Welcome to the School of Music, a place bursting with talent, creative energy and special encounters. It is a place of nuts-and-bolts learning - getting the basics for beginners right - as much as a place where musical imagination runs riot and where everyone has triple-fun with the sound of music...Making it... Listening to it... Writing it. Meet The Boss!..He's called Sergio Trunk. Some people call him The Maestro, and he, along with his team of talented musicians, will lead you through 40 lessons that help you to learn about classical music, the theory behind music, and the fun you can have making it.
