Thank you so much again for our mentoring session, I am feeling so much more confident about presenting in a couple of weeks and appreciate the time you spent with me. As a teacher with my Australian Kodaly Certificate I am always eager to find opportunities to strengthen and refine my teaching practice

Ruth's mentoring session was a wonderful opportunity to collaborate and gain a deeper understanding of the Kodaly Methodology as she shared her invaluable knowledge and expertise. Her questioning was meaningful and she made me feel very comfortable and confident in my teaching abilities. I left the mentoring session inspired and energised to continue being the best music teacher I can be.
