Louise Singleton | Headteacher | Hambrough Primary School & Nursery

1st Note Education have been providing us with their service of curriculum based Music lessons for nearly two years. They have always been very eager to improve on their professionalism and performance for our children by having observations which I, as the music co-ordinator, have been able to sit in on.

1st Note Education have always been very helpful and flexible to any needs we may have experienced and when we required a new member of their team to take the lessons, it was dealt with  very quickly without disruption to our regular music lessons. As a school we have been very happy with the service provided by 1st Note Education.
