  • Dear Clare

    Thanks for your singing workshop at the Wider Music Network Conference. The part of it I saw was energetic and lively and just at the right level for primary children. The evaluations have shown that your workshop was by far the favourite of the delegates and I know your work with colleagues will be having an impact on singing in schools going forward.

    So once again thank you so much for leading on this aspect – another excellent contribution to music education for all children and young people in Sheffield. Your work is so much appreciated and valued – I hope you know that!

    With sincere thanks again and best wishes ....
