“..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.
“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.

“Dear Jessica, I wanted to thank you for a brilliant weekend in St. Agnes. I thought the course was organised brilliantly and I feel that I have so much to explore in my playing and to think about. The only downside was that I wish it could have been longer! Again thank you and I look forward in the future to coming down to St. Agnes to attend a future course– there has been some wonderful memories and experiences this weekend” — Alison W.
“Great to hear and meet other flute players and to watch such a fabulous teacher in action. I’ve come away with lots to work on so expect lots of updates on my progress” — Claire. H., via Instagram”
“I had a great weekend with you on the retreat, thought the retreat definitely matched its title – I certainly felt refreshed and appreciated the Yoga and Meditation as well as the musical activity. The beautiful surroundings at St Agnes and all the contributors to the workshop and the friendly hosts at our B&B all helped to make it a good weekend. The team you brought together to run the retreat were inspirational – they seemed content in themselves, happy in their work and great enablers.” — Barbara Y.
“On my way back from the Boho Flute Retreat in lovely St. Agnes, Cornwall. A nice refresher on creativity, extended techniques, flute choir, plus yoga and meditation (on a cliff), and the most wonderful Cornish hospitality (they made dairy free scones and cream for me!!!). Thank you Dr. Jessica!” — Cristina C. via Facebook
