We all dream about a “match made in heaven” – but what happens when the dream doesn’t become the reality? Making mistakes when choosing your life partner can not only impact upon your happiness, but also your children, family and fortune. According to figures released by the Centre for Social Justice, family breakdowns cost the country an estimated £24billion per year, which equates to a significant impact on your wallet – but that’s to mention nothing about the emotional cost of a family breakdown.

Robbie Williams Rejoins Take That

After months of speculation and rumours circulating, the official announcement has been made: Take That are back together again, with original band member Robbie Williams rejoining them for a collaboration on a new album and soon-to-follow tour.

Viagogo have announced two current tour dates in London and Italy. Currently, there is no release date for when they will be on sale. However, anxious fans can sign up for alerts about the tickets, which immediately inform them of the news before anyone else. This is a sure way of bagging a ticket to the music event of the century.

Take That’s earlier tours were all instant sell-outs and met with increasing demands for more shows. This soon-to-come spectacular event will be no exception. As of yet, there are no details about what fans can expect from the 2011 tour. This just makes the speculation and anticipation increase further, as music lovers worldwide await the return of their idols.

One of their biggest releases as a group was the greatest hits album “Never Forget”, which also came out as a special DVD set. It contained the number one hit single “How Deep is Your Love”, which was also their only number one in the US, and “Back for Good”, which features Robbie Williams’s last appearance with the band in a music video.

Despite being down one member, the remaining four – Jason, Gary, Mark and Howard – returned in 2006. This turned out to be a wise move, and they have had a lot of commercial success since. A number one album, single, and sell-out tour quickly found them reliving their past success. The demand for Take That tickets is now higher than ever before.

Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos Launches The Co-operative’s Partnership With The British Music Experience At The O2 To Inspire Young People

Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos was at The O2 today to help The Co-operative announce its partnership with The British Music Experience. The partnership is set to help educate and inspire young people, and marked the release of 15,000 free tickets to the venue for young people across the country. The popular performer also delighted students with a “master class” at the venue offering advice on how to get into the music industry, and even playing a few acoustic tracks.

International artist Alex Kapranos, singer and guitarist of indie band Franz Ferdinand and performer of hits such as Take Me Out and Do You Want To, is delighted to be involved in the initiative: “I enjoyed meeting the students here today and talking about my experiences as a musician. It’s good to take a bit of the mystery out of song writing, while still enjoying its magic. It’s been rewarding to give back a little of what I’ve learnt myself.”

The UK has long been a world leader on the rock and pop stage, providing a constant flow of talented musicians. As such the British Music Experience is an ideal starting point for The Co-operative’s new ‘Inspiring Young People campaign’. The Co-operative has committed to inspiring and educating young people across the country, and has pledged to give away 15,000 free tickets to the British Music Experience as part of this goal.

Local students from Plumstead Manor and Eltham Green schools were amongst the lucky few at the “master class”.

Even Co-operative Group Chief Executive Peter Marks got into the act, commenting:
“The partnership with the British Music Experience is a natural fit for The Co-operative. We are committed to inspiring young people and already have a number of programmes which engage with them – whether it’s through sport, music or education. The British Music Experience is dedicated to inspiring young people through music so we’re delighted to partner with them on creating experiences and opportunities for young people.”

Guitar Teacher Goes From Working A Day Job To Support His Music Career To A Six Figure Guitar Teaching Business

Tom Hess Music Corporation congratulates Antony Reynaert, member of Tom Hess’ Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle, for successfully expanding his guitar teaching business to instructing over 100 students and earning over $100,000 per year doing so.

“Mentoring guitar teachers from all over the world is an extremely rewarding process for me”, says Tom Hess, guitar instructor and trainer of guitar teachers in his Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle coaching program. He adds: “The most fulfilling part is seeing the guitar teachers I train become hugely successful after applying what I teach them. Antony Reynaert is a perfect example of such a success story – one of many that I receive on a regular basis.”

Reynaert, a guitar teacher in Belgium, first started learning to teach guitar with Tom Hess having only 3 students, while working a separate full time day job to support himself. 13 months later, at the age of 23, Reynaert transformed his business and now successfully teaches more than 100 guitar students while working less than half the hours he did before making the transition to teaching. He is now in the process of expanding his business by developing new programs and continuing to attract more guitar students. In addition to teaching music, Reynaert is also working on developing his music career as a blues guitar artist, songwriter and performer.

Hess says: “I regularly receive feedback stories from many guitar teachers in my program telling me about the great success they have achieved from applying the training they receive from me. Yet Antony’s success is special, not only because of his young age, but also because of the incredible speed with which he transformed his guitar teaching business.”

And a moving picture is better yet! As online slots programmers introduce ever more elaborate visual features into the basic gameplay of these machines, we’ve found that video clips of these features are the ideal way to illustrate BestSlots’ reviewers’ opinions for our visitors’ benefit.”

BestSlots has launched its upgraded reviews with video content for over twenty of the most popular slots games its visitors choose to research on its site, and has plans to roll out more in the coming months to provide complete coverage of all the slot machines reviewed. “The explosion of video content on the Internet since the arrival of YouTube has changed the game for review sites such as ours,” David Newstead continues. “The opportunity to ‘show and tell’ our visitors about these games in the most revealing and entertaining way is key to our success, and I can envisage video-rich review sites quickly becoming the preferred destinations for our target audience. By integrating video material where appropriate we aim to continue delivering the most informative and entertaining service we can.”
