"Kathy's [Blackwell] approach is full of common sense with well-tried and effective pedagogy that can only come from a teacher with a great deal of practical experience within the world of small and large group string teaching in schools. In her approach it seems to me that Kathy has managed to explore the very best practice that modern string pedagogy has to offer; taking the best elements of each and combining them into a package that would work in the majority of situations that modern teachers find themselves placed in!." - Review of Kathy Blackwell's ESTA Pathways in Teaching event in Arco, Summer 2014
