May 2020 in Yellow Pages - online - LOCKDOWN REVIEW: "Dorothy is a very friendly, patient, and talented musician and teacher. She has worked with our 10-year-old for over three years now. Some of the things that really stand out are that:
1. She is flexible about where lessons take place, and has even made a great success of video calling through the lockdown.
2. She is very much a part of the local music scene, and has arranged for some great opportunities for our son to perform or see live performances.
3. She has found the right balance to keep things moving forward at a pace that suits us and our son, including arranging and preparing for exams".
