My son has just been to the 2nd week of your Summer school and has had an absolutely wonderful time. After about 2 days there he sent me a text asking if he can go again next year!
He sent one yesterday saying if necessary he would pay for it himself and today saying he didn’t want to leave!
I think you can safely say it has been a huge success. He’s even gone straight to the piano and carried on practising. He says he’s enjoyed doing lots of practice. He also said everyone was really nice.

It is possible to come for less than the full course. Please email Kathryn, the administrator to discuss options.
