“Bridie is an extraordinary leader. Her talent is unquestionable, both in terms of her musical ability and her teaching skills. Her keen ear ensures that each section learns their part effectively. She is persistent without being patronising or creating any feelings of inadequacy. She has such a kind, bright, quirky, funny and intelligent personality that I look forward to every meeting with eager anticipation. She is sensitive and patient with us all, and we are very lucky indeed to have such amazing musical director and leader, and I am so grateful to have joined this wonderful group"
