Some feedback from parents:



Music was never that much fun when I was young!


“We were overwhelmed by the concert on Friday night and must congratulate everybody who was involved. A truly inspiring week for participants and audience.”


“My son had a fantastic time last week. The concert was superb and I am lost in admiration for the way the excitement and interest was sustained all week.”


“I was so impressed with the high standard of music achieved and my sons both thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I was equally impressed with the amount of grinning that was going on from performers and tutors alike in the concert!”


“My daughter had a brilliant time and played her clarinet more in one week with you than she has for all her practice sessions added together for the past year! The music was spot on for her and she loved all the staff. She has played enthusiastically every day since the course ended, with a new sense of purpose and enjoyment.”



“Just to thank you for such a wonderful week of music making for my two girls; the one week of the year I am guaranteed to get them out of bed with not even a hint of protest and out the door early, instruments in hand, ready to go. The staff are so enthusiastic and have such an excellent rapport with the children and with each other – the girls regale us with amusing stories daily!”



“The concert last night was incredible. Having watched five years of MM concerts, we never fail to be amazed at what you manage to squeeze out of the young musicians in just a few days.”


Parent_Comments_2“Thank you again – I can’t put my finger on what makes your courses so special (apart, of course, from the boundless enthusiasm of all the staff), but they definitely are. My two children had such a great time and didn’t stop talking all the way home, telling us about all the great things they had done, from the music, the swimming, to the food, the entertainments and the friends they have made. It was such a pleasure to hear how much they had enjoyed it.”


“Thank you, thank you, thank you! My son had a brilliant time on Music Makers. He absolutely loves it – it is the favourite music course that he has ever done and he would happily live with you all for ever if he had the chance.”


“You are amazing for providing such superb courses year after year – please never give up!”


“My son had a wonderful time on your course, surrounded by friends, music and fun and the final concert was incredible, his music teacher can’t believe what you managed to fit into it!”ASH_8049


Some comments from young musicians:

“Thank you for another FANTASTIC week at Music Makers. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it and how emotional I am now that it is over – I am already looking forward to next year. Thank you again for a remarkable and enjoyable time – you guys rock!”


“Thank you for the most wonderful course. It was the best time of my life. I really didn’t want to go home afterwards.”


“Music Makers is GREAT! I’ve been swimming, played football, eaten a fry-up, had a jam session and it’s not even 9.30am!”



“No-one told me music could be so much fun. Everyday I got really excited because I knew I was going to Music Makers. I have discovered that I really like playing in ensembles and I made so many new friends. I am going to practise like mad so I am a much better player when I come next year.”

“Thank you so much for a fantastic week at MM. The music was so much fun to play and the helpers were all so kind. It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to come back next year!”


“Coming to Music Makers made me realise what playing an instrument was all about – being with friends, working as a team and really enjoying what I could do. I loved the music and wish I could do the whole week again from start to finish.”


Parent_Comments_7“I had an amazing week at Music Makers and I can’t wait for the next one. Playing in all the groups has really helped my confidence and I have learned so much. Most of all it was such fun and I am so glad I had the chance to attend.”


“Many thanks for an amazing MM week. I thoroughly enjoyed it and had a brilliant time. My playing and confidence improved dramatically during the course, I loved the range of music and all the staff were so helpful and so friendly.”
