Last week we had a visit from fabulous composer Sarah Watts. Sarah is the author of many of our best selling music books such as Red Hot Recorder, Ready Steady Recorder, Razzamajazz, Two At A Time and many others. It’s lovely to finally welcome guests into our new office and show them what we have been working on in the last year.
