Our experience of KSM over the last ten years has been very positive. Four children, four instruments and four very different attitudes to practice, but all have been infected by Paul’s boundless enthusiasm for the pure joy of music

My family will be attending KSM for their 6th year this September. I have 3 children aged between 10 and 13. It was my daughter who brought us to music through violin by attending the pre instrumental class and she just loved it.
