It was her first international experience and I am sure that she will never forget it. We were also amazed of her significant progress in just two weeks! Our congratulations for facilitating music students such a great team and warm climate. I hope we can repeat next year."
- Pilar, Madrid

• "It has now dawned on us that our daughter Aurelia has actually been accepted by the Royal Northern College of Music and it is such a joy for us all. A very big thank you for the support that all of you gave Aurelia during each of her LMFL courses where she had the opportunity to meet with outstanding and caring professors."
- Brigitte et Jean-Louis

• "...My daughter and I really liked it very much and we enjoyed it a lot. We were really pleased of participating in “The International Summer Course” which was really fantastic, amazing and interesting for us. I personally think that is the proper atmosphere I want for my daughter and my son: young people from different countries living together, interchanging experiences, playing instruments and singing together, learning music and languages from great masters and feeling the music around. My daughter, Alejandra, is really fascinated, delighted by the course and specially from her teacher. I sure this experience will encourage her to keep on studying and enjoying music. She feels enthusiastic about attending the course next summer. We are very grateful to you." 
- Luisa

• "Thank you so very, very much for the two weeks course. Lina has ever since the course been praising the two weeks; the arrangements, the atmosphere, new friends, and, most importantly, your way of making her feel so very welcome and “among family” during the entire two weeks.
She has already started talking about us making plans for next summer J."
