“As always, i really enjoyed the course and feel so privileged to be able to play such great music in such convivial company. I know how much effort you put in to make sure we all get to play the pieces we want and with compatible partners..."


“...To thank you for the amazing experience i had at your chamber music course. The amount of work you put in to make the event happen is quite astonishing and in a pandemic year the organisational challenge was immense. ..and we enjoyed the week without covid related incidents....what impressed me before and during the course was your close personal attention to my musical interests. I know you have wonderful support from your husband and others, but what comes over is the way your evident passion for the music drives everything. For a music lover that is truly inspiring."
