Just thought I would let you know that I'm so very happy to say I got the Jazz Bass place at The Royal Academy of Music!!! I'm so surprised and ridiculously overwhelmed! I couldn't thank you and everyone at Mehr Clef enough, I can most definitely say that the course inspired me and my playing so much, and that I really don't think I would of got a place anywhere if I hadn't done the course. I also really appreciated you taking the time to write me a reference, so thank you again.
Daisy George

LMH was a fantastic venue for the last summer course and last year’s course was the most enjoyable one yet!  I accepted my undergrad Royal Academy of Music place for 2014, which I’m incredibly excited about, and I really think the mock auditions you ran at the course were the best possible preparation for the whole audition experience. I’m hoping in 2014 to come to the Easter Course as well, as others really recommended it.
