“I learnt a lot about myself. I got to know my own reactions in the meeting with the children. I had strong emotional feelings during the whole day. To meet the children in this way is for me exclusive, important and full of meaning…. I will strive for more of this kind of work. I’m looking forward to developing “my own” way of doing this, with so much help and inspiration from these two days in Stockholm.”

Louise, Musician, musicians’ professional development training.

“The music we created sounded rich and complex but each individual part was relatively simple and easy enough for people with no musical experience to participate in. It was incredibly satisfying to be a part of this process which was both challenging and enjoyable.”

Workshop participant, training session in music leadership, 2013.

“The work that Ros does with our students, giving them hands-on practical experience with Klezmer, is greatly valued by us at the University of Manchester. It provides an excellent means for ear training, musicianship skills, ensemble playing and teamwork, whilst introducing our students to one of the world’s richest cultural heritages.”
