"There’s no doubt that music lessons are of an enormous benefit to G on so many different levels. He is learning, he is exploring, he is enjoying himself and also he’s getting a great sense of achievement from making music. We are very fortunate in having a very skilled professional like Beth working with G. She is certainly making a huge difference to his life. " - Student's Parent
