What people are saying about Jessica's workshops:
"Just back at station after a fabulously inspiring & reinvigorating flute workshop with @JQflute"
-- David B. via Twitter
"There was something so much more than music that happened…When I arrived there was such an easy, relaxed welcome. It was impossible to ignore the radiance, the glow, the warmth, the love, a truly a transcendent experience…couldn't help but do well from that start." -- Sean O.
"If you play the flute and are looking to spark up your creativity, then @JQflute is the lady for you!" -- Tanya B., via Twitter
"Wow, what a great day we had last Saturday and I have really benefited from the work we did. This week I have felt so much more free in my playing, as if I've been given permission to step outside of the box called 'traditional classical flute training' into somewhere else, unknown and exciting"… -- Fiona R.
"..here was a lady who was talking about shaking up the way you think about making music, about finding your own way of doing things, breaking out of the 'box' of traditional expectations around flute playing, and really sharing your music from the heart. …Jessica absolutely 'got' what I wanted to achieve …."
-- Rachel S.
