TESTIMONIALS:

"As someone who thought that playing and improvising with other musicians was out of reach,

this course has been transformational. The fundamentals of improvising are broken down into

manageable learning steps, but the personal feedback in real time and the experience of playing

and interacting with other musicians would be impossible to replicate at home. It's done wonders

for my confidence, my playing and my understanding of the basics of improvisation. I couldn't 

recommend it highly enough." AP

"Jenni was consistently calm, clear and encouraging, designing 'just right' pieces to enable me to

participate fully - everyone's parts are personalised to their varying abilities - it increased my

confidence, whilst maintaining a sense of being a valued part amongst a mixed group of musicians

with different levels of experience. Thank you Jenni!" VK

"Jenni's dynamic approach to teaching, excellent knowledge base and relaxed manner has really

given me the confidence to grow as a musician and challenge myself. I had no experience of

improvisation and after expert guidance and cleverly designed exercises I've found a new freedom 

in music which is exciting and refreshing. Jenni expertly coordinates the group in a fun, inclusive

and welcoming environment. Her enthusiasm and passion for music is truly inspiring." RN
