"Just wanted to check in and say a big THANK YOU. Since attending the course I've started my own business delivering music workshops for young children. After a hard first year, things have gone from strength to strength. My client roster is growing and feedback is great. I'm now working in schools and colleges and am loving it. Studying with Community Music gave me the confidence, tools and understanding to make this happen, so I'm very grateful”
