Feedback

“I thought the workshop was excellent all ’round. The ensemble obviously handled everything well. Playing the pieces certainly, as well as giving feedback and advice. I can’t really think of any way in which it might have been improved except to do things like this as often as possible.”

Glasgow University student workshop participant

“From my own perspective I agree that the workshop was a fabulous success. The experience benefitted not just those students who had pieces performed but everyone else who attended and observed too.” Read more here
