Woodwind lessons reviews and student comments


Philippa 21.

"We play a wide variety of music, so no two sessions are the same. It's great fun, especially the coffee and cake break.”

Richard 70.

"It's something to look forward to each month - shame the 3rd clarinet gets all the difficult parts."

Joan, Osmington.

"I bought five lessons for my grandson. He loved it and it has built his confidence so much. I’ll get him five more for Christmas."

Colin, Weymouth.

"Monika has just passed grade 2 exams with distinction on clarinet. Thanks so much.”

Ingrid, Cerne Abbas.

"I have wanted to learn to play the flute my whole life and now I have retired and have more time on my hands I thought it would give it a go. "

"Kevin has been an excellent teacher and showed me how to get the most from my flute. I have just passed my first exam and will do more now that I can play with others.
Thanks Kevin."

Alfie, Sherborne.

"I really enjoyed the familiar Tin Pan Alley and Broadway tunes in the jazz syllabus. And then the contemporary jazz section.  Nice."

Elizabeth, Weymouth.

"My dad was bowled over by his present. Now he thinks he’s some kind of jazz maestro so hopefully five more lessons from the family might improve his abilities a touch!"

Rosie, Dorchester.

"I’ve always wanted to play the saxophone. Now I’m well on my way. There’s loads more to learn but I know we’ll get there. Thanks for your understanding and patience."
