John Hearson

Very thorough and clear

I really appreciated the opportunity to take part in such comprehensive training at a time when so many vocations have ceased. I tuned in from London and feel that the information was communicated in a clear and concise manner, thanks zoom as well!

Cally Maxwell

The training was really useful. It was the most interesting safeguarding training I have ever attended and I really liked how Penny used clinical examples that were very relevant to music therapy practice. Zoom also worked really well and it was great to meet everyone and not have to travel for the course. Thank you.


Today was good thanks


Happy I did this despite missing a sunny day!


Thank you everyone for a great training!
