Studio Guest Trish Strain Mon 27th May at 7pm on ScotSpeak with Janice Ross
This week’s guest is cello and fiddle tutor, Trish Strain, who has been playing the cello from the age of seven. Chosen to receive lessons because she could recite the alphabet backwards, Trish began a lifelong love affair with the instrument, gaining a joint honours degree in Music and Archaeology. Employed during the last 30 years tutoring Glasgow school pupils, she fervently believes that all pupils should have access to music and enjoy free lessons in school. A stalwart of Glasgow Folkmusic Workshop, where she is the only cello tutor, her abundant energy and enthusiasm as she helps adult learners apply the nuances associated with playing traditional music, is always present. Sometimes it is difficult to see Trish behind her instrument case Studio Guebut her sunny disposition always shines forth.
