Best wishes to all my students, past, present (and future...) Jon
Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus COVID-19, it is with great regret that I have to announce the suspension of all Tuition appointments (those that are normally physically attended) at the Academy of Quality Music Tuition for the foreseeable future.
I wish to emphasise that the Academy of Quality Music Tuition will continue to offer its unique Music Education and Mentoring 'in-person' as soon as all physical attendance restrictions due to COVID-19 have been lifted in the future and that myself and the Academy of Quality Music Tuition will continue to flourish to enable me to do what I do best...
I also wish to emphasise that ALL bookings made at the Academy will be honoured - we'll just carry on where we left off in effect - and I really look forward to seeing you all return for some real, live, one-to-one Tuition at some point further down the line...
In addition, this now means that ALL live gigs (including the 'Chroma CD Launch Gig') are now also suspended due to a blanket closure of venues, but I WILL be back playing live Music on the Isle of Man as soon as I am able to, folks, believe me...
Also, Don't forget to support and download Captured the debut Album by Chroma - available on all the major online Music retailers such as...
...and many more - please support Musicians at this time, I say...!!!
Most importantly of course, the absolutely critical pathway for us all is to now make sure that as with everyone on this planet, we do our utmost to follow the guidelines as set out by the authorities, which have now been made to protect our way of life - so please stay safe, one and all.
I will be posting further information as I am able to, but rest assured, as Mr. Schwarzenegger said: "I'll be back" (please be sure to use an Austrian-American accent when saying this... ha, ha...!!!)
Here's a thought... why not use this time to learn new skills on your chosen instruments and to listen to new types of Music, whilst also checking out other Musicians - I certainly will be doing this - therefore we can all come out of these difficult times Musically-stronger...
In the meantime, it remains for me to send my best wishes to each and every one of you - and to thank you ALL in advance for your continued support in these difficult times for us all...

"You need to be continually in a cycle of self-learning to be able to keep up with new techniques and current trends in the Music Industry - and for me, this is ongoing - my 'self-training' occurs every single day - you will never reach the end of your own 'personal learning'."
Jazz Fusion (Bass Guitar Improvisation)
An example of a completely spontaneous Melodic Improvisation performed by Academy of Quality Music Tuition Tutor, Jon Sanders
Jon attended 'The Epicentre of the Bass-playing World' - the Warwick Bass Camp Educational Seminar, held in Markneukirchen, Southern Germany, in August/September.
The Camp, which draws together the elite in Bass playing and Education, is a feast of networking, masterclasses and general exchange of ideas, and Jon was delighted to be able to be part of such a prestigious event.
Jon would like to say a sincere 'hi' and thanks to all who attended and took the time to speak to him, whether sharing their ideas through masterclasses or just one-to-one.
A special thanks goes to Hans-Peter Wilfer, whose dedication and hard work has made this event so unique in the Bass-playing community - keep on making those great Basses, sir!!!
