Best thing I’ve done all year! I would happily do this every week. Hope Christine is coming back soon- there was mention of Christmas songs, EXCELLENT!

Fabulous day, superb teacher, when will she be back?

Really great fun. It was such a buzz and felt really natural once we knew the melodies. Christine is a fantastic teacher.
