Just had to share some glowing feedback from the last workshop attendees! (And not bribed by the biscuit quality from the last session!)
The jazz workshop in June was fantastic - and a lot was helped by the new pieces that I wrote for the course. I think its because I managed to write a piece that gave them a lyrical melody to utalise as well as giving them enough space and idea to create their own tune with it.
You can hear one of the pieces here
And here's what they said:
"Thorough and carefully considered preparation to accommodate all participants. Successfully encourages development of skills, teaching new ideas and and cleverly creating new angles to previously explored concepts. Rachael has composed some beautiful music and in a way that tempts all to test and expand their abilities. Her sense of humour certainly adds to the fun. KB"
"Rachael gave a well prepared and carefully structured workshop which challenged us all at our different levels of experience. She explained everything clearly while keeping the atmoshere relaxed and friendly. I came away with a head buzzing with fresh ideas and keen to try out my new skills at home. AD"
In Somerset and fancy joining us for the next one - keep your eyes peeled - January 2020 course date to be announced soon!
