Lovely lady, welcoming and inclusive. Delivery and content was rather haphazard and not hugely helpful in terms of ideas. Perhaps my expectations of the course content was unrealistic. It just seemed a bit disorganised and unclear.

A total music novice, who is now teaching music. I absorbed the ideas like a sponge and feel that I will be doing my students justice when teaching them music.

Would have liked more strategies to work with and understand individual student activities rather than group work. Would also like to understand how my Support students think. Would have loved digital resources.
