Ensemble Playing for Beginners

Below is a little article I wrote about playing in a group for the first time. I was inspired to write this when I started thinking about my own experiences of playing in an ensemble for the first time, and the comments I hear from my students. Hopefully this will encourage people to give it a go and join a local group or band. It is without doubt one of the best things you can do to improve your playing and all-round musicianship and a fun and rewarding activity to take part in!
