"As a student and assistant of the course, the most impressive things that I experienced were the enthusiasm and friendship created between the students. These gave us a feeling of security and freedom that allowed us to express our desire to share opinions and ideas amongst ourselves.
I think this was really helpful because we had the opportunity to discuss any musical matters with our peers, without any kind of embarrassment, helping each other about any problem and getting even more motivated, inspired and knowledgeable about music.
The teachers’ dedication, enthusiasm, encouragement and desire to experience their students’ progress were superior. We all loved our individual and ensemble coaching and the final result in the concert was stunning. Also, the teachers performed a huge amount of concerts throughout the course, which I think is a crucial part of any music course. The students had the opportunity to fully understand their teachers’ comments and suggestions by watching them perform.
The experience was really helpful, fruitful and fun, as well as hardworking, and I look forward to come back next year. Thanks Olena and all the amazing teachers!"

"My observation has been that the teaching at the individual level was excellent. Your teachers although professionals at a high level were nurturing and kind. They displayed tremendous patience and skill in handling their students and gave no hesitation in imparting technique.
The idea behind the teachers concerts, communal choir, eating together in the dining hall and the Cheddar Gorge day out created for a whereby the students, teachers and parents could all socialise at a the same level fostering relationships in a relaxed and fun atmosphere and simultaneously providing the students with inspiration and support. This worked very well!
Olena, you were wonderful from the initial contact via email in terms of suggestions on how to structure my daughter’s program, to the warm reception on arrival and the kindness, patience and thoughtfulness provided throughout the camp.
On behalf of my entire family we extend our heartfelt congratulations and gratitude."
