"The amazing rapport they achieved with the audience enabled all four players to communicate with ease, demonstrating their instruments and showing how the sounds were produced. Most enthralling was their hypnotic playing of Ravel’s Bolero while they walked through the audience.  By lunchtime, there were over 70 enthusiasts eager to learn the saxophone."

We are always looking for opportunities to enrich the learning experience and your workshop was highly effective in doing so.
