Conductor - France
So much has changed in my life, since the London Master Classes sessions. I've discovered a
new energy... you've shown me the way... and now so many more things are possible in my music-
making and in my life.
Soprano - UK
My confidence has been majorly boosted and I feel a huge sense of pride being involved with such high quality level of teaching and student standard. As for Sergei Leiferkus, well I never thought I'd have the chance to sing in front of one of "the greats", but I did and I feel that I now have a thousand new ideas to go away and put into practice!!!
Nuno de Araujo Pereira
Bass - Portugal
I wish to thank you for everything. This past week was indeed the very important for me. Being able to work with Philip Langridge was really fantastic and I shared and learned so much and met so many wonderful people.
Baritone - Holland
Thank you soooooooooooo much for an absolutely wonderful week!!!!! It has been a great honour and such pleasure to work with Sergei (Leiferkus) and Ben (Zander).
Dr Rebecca Beaconsfield
Your Master Course this year was even more exciting and interesting than usual - and that's saying something! I felt I simply had to tell you how privileged and please I felt to be there listening to all those talented youngsters - to say nothing of my appreciation of the Masters themselves. "Bonne continuation"!!
Auditor/Pianist - Hong Kong
Even though I was only an observer of the classes, I feel that my perception of music has been raised to a much higher level after this incredibly memorable week...
Paul B. Cohen

I was amazed by the highest quality of student performance and equally delighted with the stellar level of instruction by faculty who gave completely of their long experience with deep sincerity, warmth and vivid good humour.
Conductor - Belgium
The week was pure heaven for me... It was wonderful to discover a place where everything was made possible, for the benefit of us all, performers, composers, audience... Thank you!
Cellist - Switzerland
Thank you very much for the wonderful days... what a fantastic experience! I am coming back with wings and I will take all that I have learned with me in my cello case!
Conductor - UK
It was one of the best weeks of music and inspiration I have ever had. A fabulous opportunity and so so valuable and helpful to me!
Soprano – UK
Opportunities like this are all too rare and I feel so lucky and grateful to have had this week of intensive study.
Soprano - UK
This was my first time taking part in the event, and I can only describe it as the best course for singing and performance I have done so far…. and undoubtedly. the most comprehensive, exciting and inspiring musical and performing environment I have encountered.
Soprano - USA
What a phenomenal experience I had this past summer at London Master Classes.
I have never had the opportunity to be in such a rich and isolated musical environment before, and it was some of the most educative, informative and creative days I have ever spent.
Piano - Georgia
Never in my life have I been surrounded by such talent. I can speak about pianists, as I was on this course. Not only to see such talent, but the impressive level of professionalism as well.
Violin - USA
The speed in which everyone flourished was astounding and inspiring… By giving us performance opportunities, the Master Classes gave a chance to test our abilities, and gain experience as a performer.
Violin - South Korea
After an intensive week of performing everyday in front of an audience, I found myself become more and more confident and technically solid on stage. I am grateful for being pushed to the boundaries of what I could do.
