There’s nothing like becoming Tower Captain to highlight one’s ringing shortcomings. Imagine my delight when offered a place on a training event geared towards developing and honing some basic conducting skills of which I am wanting. This was offered by Michael Uphill – in fact, it was his last appearance as Surrey Training Officer.
It was a good morning and thoroughly instructive. The Surrey website now features Michael’s article on the Devon Short Peal in which he describes his very good reasons for including it in his training curriculum. His article is followed by a student ‘review’ (well, he did ask).
So, go on. Ask me to conduct a Devon Short Peal.
