Here are some of the comments we received:

"I enjoyed the varied repertoire, the social evenings and the friendly attitude of the staff."

"It was great meeting new and nice people, learning new music techniques and having the opportunity to play in the Millennium Centre."

"Mwynhais y gyngerdd - roedd perfformio mewn neuadd mor arbennig yn fythgofiadwy. Roedd y rhaglen hefyd yn ddiddorol, ac roedd yn brofiad da chwarae darnau nad ydynt yn rai gyffredin."

"Roedd yr holl ymarferion llawn ac adrannol yn gofiadwy iawn am eu bod nhw'n waith caled ond yn llawer o hwyl ar yr un pryd. Yn ogystal, roedd y gweithgareddau cymdeithasol yn y nos yn gyfle ardderchog i wneud ffrindiau newydd."

"I really enjoyed playing the Schmitt as it pushed me technically and I thought that Sowetan Spring was a very good piece overall. I loved Masquerade as it was good fun and thought that the Corpus Christi was a really well composed piece!"

"Roedd y repertoire yn eang ac yn ddiddorol - roedd perfformio darnau ar gyrion y repertoire arferol yn brofiad da."

"The concert in Hoddinot hall for me was the most memorable part of the course. Also the great tutors and the oppurtunity to work with Simon Wills."
