CREATIVE LEARNING AND PARTICIPATION:
"Alice combines wonderful playing and musicianship with a natural affinity for engaging with people creatively. I have seen Alice improvising music alongside young children, people with learning disabilites, and people living with dementia. Every time there is a real sense of excitement and creativity that never fails to impress me."

BLOG POST by Alice about her experience
"I was hugely impressed and think you have a real flair for this type of work. I loved the way you related to both the children and their teacher - drawing out the shyer members of the class, valuing and applauding their ideas"

"Alice's contribution on our 2017 summer Superstrings course proved to be outstanding. Not only did she coax the very best result out of her children's chamber music group enticing them to explore the wonder's of Mozart, but she was a formidable house parent, dealing with everything 9-17 year olds chose to throw at her! She is a perfect team player."
Daphne Moody Superstrings
