"I have gained a new self-image as a musician"

Through this course I have gained a new self-image as a musician. Boundaries and limiting thinking have been dissolved: I can better recognize, feel and play music. Jelske brings in so many ideas and approaches that it always remains exciting.

"I now feel like a real musician"

This is what proper musicians do! I thought I would never be able to do that as I have spent so many years reading parts. This is a new way of playing for me. Its funny, I now feel like a real musician, like I am not faking it anymore.

"This course has given me so much confidence"

I've always had this phobia about playing improv in public with other instruments or people, I just could not do it. I even struggled to play with backing tracks. This course has taught me so much and given me so much confidence and has inspired me to go further with my music.
