Ed established a great rapport with our students... and assisted them in developing their art form knowledge and understanding in song writing... they were inspired by his professional expertise and we would be delighted to work with him again in the future.

All of the children who took part thoroughly enjoyed the creative process and responded well to the prompts and support that Ed gave and the final performance was absolutely fantastic.
