"The youth choir is absolutely amazing - a definite highlight of my son's week. Jason works magic with the children. His attention to singing technique coupled with his sense of fun is the perfect meld for this age group. The choir sings beautifully with such musicality, and the weekly social after rehearsals gives it a unique edge, making it very appealing to teens (with the added benefit of making some lovely new friends outside of school)."
