Far surpassed my expectations

“I have been teaching music for 15 years and haven’t come across anything so well-designed and carefully thought-out… the work my
students have produced has far surpassed my expectations and given them confidence in the
composition process”
Diana Tarry
Director of Music | Blue Coat C of E School, Coventry

I feel more confident with composing!

“The courses are really easy to follow and I learnt a lot in a short space of time. I really like all the examples and I felt more confident with writing my own piece.”
Year 10 Student
Manchester High School

Our Year 10 class found it very helpful

“The courses tackle skills which don’t necessarily come naturally to all musicians, regardless of proficiency. Our Year 10 GCSE
class used the platform and found it very helpful, demystifying what they often view as an impenetrable process.”
Aidan Bradley
Director of Music | Manchester High School For Girls
