’’It’s such a unique course. I’d been looking for relevant professional development opportunities for a while and this was the first which seemed specifically tailored to me as a cello teacher. The tutors are inspirational and I have made great friends from all over the world, all of us share the same passion for teaching string instruments!’’ Danielle Jones

‘’The PGCert is allowing me to improve my teaching further through self-reflection and sharing ideas with a lovely team of mentors and colleagues. It’s being just what I needed at this point of my teaching career!” David Novalbos Muela

‘’The ESTA PGCert has given me the tools to analyse my own technique, helping me to become a better player and teacher.   I have enjoyed being able to exchange ideas with colleagues outside of my immediate circle, including our excellent mentors.’’ Julie Robinson
