Dr Elizabeth Stafford
Director & CME Programme Leader
“Finally I’ve met a music course trainer who really understands how to link all the different aspects of music together and how to break it down following the new national curriculum.”
“The best aspect of the course was the integrity of the delivery – honest, realistic and yet backed up by research and excellent and up-to-date familiarity. The fact that Liz had a background from many different camps really helped.”
“Liz had a very up to date knowledge of education and was obviously a very experienced musician. She was able to meet the different needs of all the participants in the room who came from very different starting points!”
