TESTIMONIALS...nice things folk have said :-) 

"Gadie Music, has offered our child a unique opportunity to develop his interest in traditional music. He has benefited from the excellent tuition, group sessions and opportunity to perform and tour with NEFC. The youngsters have great fun, but also develop a love and respect for our traditional scottish culture. We are lucky to have such a professional and committed organisation in the North East."

"Sharon has a natural ability to bring out incredible confidence in children and young adults to develop their own musical abilities. She captures their imagination and makes the whole process fun and unforgettable. The musical experiences she has created have always had, in my experience, an enduring effect, so much so, that her instinctive teaching and musical talent can completely change children's lives in a profound and lasting way." 
Allison Grant mother of Finnan, Cameron and Jack

"Sharon and Gadie Music have been of invaluable help to me! From audition preparation for Sgoil Chiùil na Gàidhealtachd and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to live music experience and performance opportunities at Stonehaven Folk Festival and NAFCo in Derry, Gadie Music has helped me through every aspect of musical help I've needed!"

"Hi Sharon,

Just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done over the past year with the kids. They have learned so much, had great opportunities to perform on stage and most importantly of all they have loved every minute of the folk collective experience.

Can’t thank you enough for your hard work, good humour and infectious enthusiasm. The kids are looking forward to more music-making with you this year.

As parents we particularly appreciate how you involve the kids in planning and arranging so much of the group-work as well as the dreaded fund-raising…which is all good fun! You have helped them gain confidence, develop their playing skills as well as make new friends and widen their horizons in general.

Thanks again
