Thank you so much for inviting A to the BAY choir week. She had an amazing time and whilst tired, has been the most animated I've seen her in a long time.

He has thoroughly enjoyed the course, & you seemed to ignite his love of singing again, something I haven't seen for a long time. I am sure he will attend future courses after having had so much fun this week.

" I  knew it would be good - but in fact it was stunning !  Fantastic to achieve so much in the space of a week. The quality of the singing and musicianship was hugely impressive but also the obvious fun and enjoyment they all had.  As a concert it was top class entertainment - the variety of repertoire and the imaginative use of spaces and choreography. I must book the date for next year."

(Chairman of the Bromley Boy Singers) 

"Musically, it was great to see them all perform - no one hiding away or coasting through and some pretty spectacular singing and performance skills on show - and you had chosen great repertoire and done a fantastic job in ensuring they all felt on top of it."

"I would like to personally thank you for the amazing week you have produced. ... to help with younger musicians gives me the chance to see which pathways I may take in the future, whether it be teaching or performing."

(Winner of the Spirit of BAY Award, 2017) 

"BAY is a beautiful, safe place where you can receive the most amazing tuition and gain so many important skills. It’s brilliant for boosting confidence, making life long friends, developing your musical knowledge whilst always having fun! It changed my life forever and I will be eternally grateful."

(BAY Professional Training Programme Candidate, 2019) 

"Other than introducing me to amazing people (including the fabulous teachers) it has helped improve my confidence in, not only singing, but my own musicianship. Doing B.P.T.P only further cemented that confidence and gave me the opportunity to see BAY from a new and interesting perspective. Every year I look forward to doing BAY and it gets harder to leave after the week is over, every time."

(BAY Professional Training Programme Candidate, 2019 & Spirit of BAY, 2018) 

"Unless you’ve been on a BAY course, there’s no way to understand it. The week is a journey where strangers turn into family, and so immersive you don’t even need your phone at dinner time! Make sure to book a week of sleep at home afterwards !"

(Spirit of BAY, 2019) 

"I’m not sure you realise what you’ve actually done for B - as you will by now be aware she is a natural introvert by nature but you’ve spotted the wonderful qualities we see in her and
really allowed her to blossom. Her confidence is swelling to new proportions and I really believe that’s because of you….and her!
The work that you do at BAY is so valuable"

(Parent of Junior BAY participant) 

"It gives you the chance to learn from the top choral directors and singing teachers in the country, while the training programme allows for your growth in teaching, with them guiding you through the process. These intensive weeks have shaped my ideal future career, and I’m continuing to learn every year that I return.
Judith and Travis are exceptional at providing the education and support for any budding young singer. The atmosphere these courses create provides a safe space to learn and develop your love for singing, while maintaining a very high standard."

(BAY - MT and Senior BAY participant) 

"I don’t think you truly realise just how much of a positive impact you have on every single child that comes up through your courses. I know I speak for a lot of people when I say
you have created one of the most nurturing, joyful and encouraging environments that so many will hold fond memories of forever more.
You are both such inspirational, wonderful people, and I feel so privileged to know you and be coached by you both. Thank you for everything you’ve given me this week. I can never tell you just how much it has meant to me."
