"Thank you SO much for arranging the course and for all the support and tuition. Rhys has thoroughly enjoyed everything about the course and he says it has inspired him to practise harder and it has reminded him of how much he loves playing.
I sincerely hope you will arrange another course very soon.. the variety is the key I think.
Thank you again and thank you to Wallis for the lesson and to you for the discussion group session in particular which Rhys found very interesting. Rhys has learned a lot from it.. he has had a great time."
Student Rhys Wynn Newton
"I am so impressed with your meticulous organisation. We always knew where we should be and at what time. You are a complete star, and Hannah has loved every minute. Please thank your talented colleagues for their insightful and thoughtful teaching. Hannah particularly found your sectional on the Bach helpful, because you explained how to practise the shifts. What I really loved is that you have given them a new perspective, being that you are young and your enthusiasm is communicated so clearly to these younger musicians.
What a joy!
Hannah is now determined to play baroque cello one day!"
Student Hannah Chadwick Jones
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the tutors for creating such a fun and varied course for our young cellists! Lucy enjoyed it hugely and learned lots, as well as really developing her confidence in playing and sharing her ideas with the group. I was especially grateful for your careful management of her initial reticence - working with a new group, especially online, can feel very exposing and overwhelming. Your responsiveness and care in establishing an atmosphere where everyone felt comfortable, encouraged and supported in making their contributions was very impressive."
Student Lucy O'Shea
"The three-day online course was a great mixture of games, practice and discussions, all delivered in a very nurturing and supportive atmosphere. My daughter was encouraged throughout and given helpful feedback and tips on her playing. We have missed having lessons face-to-face over the last five months and the course definitely rekindled my daughter's confidence. It is difficult to keep children engaged online for any length of time, but the three days sped past. The Suzuki sessions were definitely a big hit, as was the creative listening and imagining session."
