Testimonials:
Fantastic melodies perfectly arranged for any free class, no matter what the ability. The melodies are memorable and just what I look for in a CD for class. Keep up the amazing work!
I have just finished listening to your CD (and planning a class to it) and felt compelled to write you. Your music is so incredibly beautiful and soulful. My dancers will love taking class to your music. It is so rare to find a CD that completely captures the feel of live accompaniment and somehow you have done just that. I look forward to the release of volume 2 and the many I hope will follow it. Thank you for sharing your gifts with the ballet word!
I am writing to let you know how much I enjoy your cds, on several levels. I enjoy your music when I take ballet class....it is so much fun and just helps me enjoy class even more. I dance ballet as a hobby(4 x a week!) but I am a pediatric physical therapist by profession. I work in a school for special needs children, the majority of whom cannot walk or talk. I always wanted to combine my passion with my work and eventually started a ballet program for our little girls. It is very unconventional...each child has an adult with them to move their arms or legs, and the class takes place seated, either on a bench or a rolling stool or even in a wheelchair. The children are ages 3 to 12. I am always in search of music that the children and staff will enjoy and must tell you that they very much enjoy your music. So, thank you for your wonderful music. I look forward to future cds and hope that another one will be coming out soon.
