Thanks so much for the crash course in flute playing last week.  I learnt tons - posture (now doing exercises for this), breathing (can now keep a note on the wall), playing quietly, how to listen to myself and be more precise every-time.  All has been incorporated into my practise...  :-) H  Krakow May 2015



Thank you so much for all your hard work, encouragement and 'tough love' It was daunting being in such proficient company but got so much out of it and they ( and you ) were so supportive. Onwards and upwards !  Loved it ... and the food !

A memorable week end in so many ways - I felt i grew in self confidence and shall try to keep up with scales, arpeggios and alternative fingerings so that you will see a difference when we next meet.
Thanks again for your encouragemnt, tuition, fabulous food and for making me feel very welcome

Thank you for a fantastic week in Spain. Your teaching has transformed my playing. I am able to enjoy it so much more. Once again. A big thank you to you and Julie. JH. Sept. 2014

Many thanks once again for providing such a wonderful experience on your course over the last few days.  It was a delight to meet you both, and hopefully we will meet again in the future.
I am looking forward to putting everything you taught me into practice, and I know flute playing will become even more enjoyable as I improve. JS 2014

First can I say a huge thanks for the course it was fab I came home extremely happy and maybe a little fatter than I got there..... LC, 2014

Just a short note to thank you both very much for providing such an enjoyable course, beautiful food and wonderful hospitality.I now feel inspired to learn my scales properly and, hopefully, will book onto another course next year. PL, summer 2014

Your course was fantastic. Yesterday I recorded a couple of pieces on my IPhone. The sound was very close to what I have striven for over many years! Your “small” adjustments were magic! I have booked a new course with you and can’t wait to get there.

Please accept my thanks again for all the time and patience you spent with me, it was great.....very edifying and fun too and I couldn't have asked for better hospitality from everyone. TW. August 2014

Thank you so much for such a wonderful inspiring course at Rye. It was, without doubt, one of the most professional and well orchestrated I have ever participated in. You will notice that I have already booked a course for early 2015. RH - August 2014

 
 Thank you so much for all your help and advice, and delicious food!  I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt a great deal. AA - Rye 2014

I had a fantastic time on my first saxophone course at Earls Hall.  I
enjoyed and learnt from all the teaching sessions. I loved being able to
play with other people, eating  amazing food and also the great company of
everyone else on the course.  I just wish I could come along to more of your
courses but as I teach full time the majority of courses do not quite fit in
with my school holidays. SA -July 2014

"....I came on the 1 to 1 course with Nick and Julie really dejected. I have been playing for 15 years but struggled with the rudiments like staying in tune and sight-reading. Nick was able to change the way I thought about music in general and reading of music specifically. The change was dramatic. I went from looking at piece and saying this will take 3 week to 90% there to playing a piece 90% right almost instantly. There were some sight-reading pieces I nailed 100% right first time. This truly astounded me and took my playing to a level which frankly I had only dreamed about up to this point. I would recommend this course to all adults who are musicians but feel that their technique has lapsed and they are never going to get there. I especially recommend it to advanced musicians who thinking of throwing in the towel. The course not only changed the way I play music, it changed my life. 

PS I am still getting used the new way I am able to approach pieces! ..."  Spain, 2013
