STUDENTS’ COMMENTS FROM QUESTIONNAIRES 2010-2014



How does this course compare to others you have attended?
The Ibacus harp course is of a higher standard and more professional, yet with a relaxing atmosphere.

This one had the most harp playing out of all the courses I have attended’

Better atmosphere.

This course has more opportunity for practice and is more individually focussed.

Ibacus has much more variety, fun and content.

Ibacus is more professional and more useful.

More is covered on this course.

I like the intensity of it.

This course is more focussed on the class lessons and I learnt a lot of important general things through that. The social contact was better too.

I feel that this timetable is better balanced and there were a lot of really useful things being taught, like performance walk-on tips and session secrets.

There was more focus on technique which was good.

 
What were your general observations?
Thank you for talking to me about my future options, it really cleared up a lot of things and helped me make choices.

It went so quickly that I wish it could last another week

A wonderful course. I feel equipped to learn and progress, and now I finally know how to practise! Inspiring teaching that managed to point out improvements without being demoralising.

A very good course that I would definitely suggest to others. A course I would attend again.

I learnt lots and had a fantastic time, so thanks!

The whole course was very inspiring and extremely useful. Thank you so much for a fantastic week. I have so much to take away with me, it has been great.
