In 2 short years, my daughter has progressed to now starting work on grade 4 flute. We are absolutely delighted with this and so very grateful to Mrs Oade who has inspired and encouraged Rebekah so much. The standard of her teaching has been second to none and Rebekah has consistently undertaken her practice with no prompting. We are now re-locating and can only hope that Rebekah’s new teacher is anywhere near as excellent as Mrs Oade.
Thank you to ‘Music for Life’. Rebekah was schooled in the private sector for prep and had music lessons arranged with individual instrument teachers. The system was nowhere near as efficient and required significantly more monitoring and intervention on my part. Please do keep doing what you’re doing, I’m sure it is changing so many young persons lives for the better!
I just wanted to say thank you to his tutors and MfL for inspiring my son and being brilliant, encouraging teachers. It has been a great experience for him. He is autistic and we have been amazed how he has progressed. It has given him confidence and been a calming influence for him.
Your emphasis on inclusion and excellence in seemingly equal measure is really remarkable. The performances were much more joyful and committed than anything we have seen before from people of that age and experience. Your choice of music, the type of arranging and the personalities of the people you employ clearly works very well and is something of a special formula.
As someone who has always taken a sympathetic and supportive interest in our daughter (whom you know to be severely /profoundly deaf ) we thought you would want to know that she has won a National competition for deaf musicians! Her prize includes a 2 day Masterclass, taught by specialists of national repute and then she is playing at the Birmingham Rep Theatre. Well done Mrs Turner and Music For Life!
May I take this opportunity to say how very happy and impressed we are with the level of care and motivational input given to young musicians by ALL of your staff. Samuel can be easily overwhelmed by new situations but with MfL he has blossomed and grown in confidence. Music for Life are to be highly recommended as a professional, motivational and inspiring organisation with talented and inspirational tutors who really care about the child.
You have helped Adam enormously with his music and he has grown with confidence since you started the band.
S Grinton, parent, Neston.
It was an honour playing with such great people and it was in many ways the main driving force keeping me motivated to play music. Thanks for everything you’ve done for me.

I really do thank Music for Life for the tuition and support you have given both Matthew and Jonny over the last 7 years. Jonny continues with his guitar, he is a member of a band and they play in various venues in Liverpool. (O2 Academy, the Picket) . Thank you and your team.
G & S Davies, parents, Neston
I would like to say that Matthew is really enjoying his guitar lessons and cannot speak highly enough of his tutor, Paul.

A big ‘THANK YOU!’ to Music for Life for the wonderful service and great teaching by Will Hay for quite a number of years!

I just wanted you to know that my son has just finished at Primary School and will be starting secondary school in September so sadly will be unable to continue with piano lessons with Mr. Roberts. He absolutely loved his lessons with him and we are hoping to continue with them at his new school. We have been delighted with Music for Life and have booked up his younger brother to learn the piano in September. – J Allmand Smith, parent, Chelford
I’d like to tell you how much the children are enjoying their lessons, and how James’ and Victoria’s performance has made a huge difference to how they view their instruments.They all love the tutors. Katie is sad to see Gemma go, and I’m delighted that James has a male guitar teacher who is making such a good impression on him. Victoria also loves to see Helen each week. Thank you! – G Fox, parent, Crewe
Thank you very much for the great guitar lessons you have arranged for Freddie – it has been wonderful to see him progress. – Frederick & C Escott, parents, Cheshire
My daughter, Joanna, is about to finish her lessons with Music for Life. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers who have taught her as they have all been brilliant. It has been wonderful to see her develop into a confident and enthusiastic performer. Their teaching has been exemplary. On a personal note I would like to thank Music for Life teachers for all the support they have given me as governor, to enable me to produce many different types of concerts and a regular spot for pupils to play in assembly. These events wouldn’t be as successful without their hard work with the performers. At our last concert there were over 50 pupils performing which is a quarter of the school! – L Bentley, Helsby, parent and school governor
Once again, I cannot speak highly enough of the trumpet tution provided for my son by Mr Norbury. He enjoyed it and I’m sure will continue to play! I wish you and Music for Life every success in the future. – J Lewis, parent, Neston
Thank you for all your wonderful music lessons that all my children have had whilst being at Tarporley High School. All have got to a good standard on trumpet/clarinet and flute and my daughter has just passed her grade two keyboard as well. – J Jennings, parent, Tarporley
