Testimonial

'I began to play the viola “from scratch” in February 2018 as a result of thecreation of the Viola for Violinists course. I had never considered taking up this instrument but onceI saw the course advertised I was excited and very enthusiastic to be part of it. I am thankful forthis opportunity as I now have a new skill which I enjoy very much and look forward to having theopportunity to use.'
