Arts1 School of Performance: Student Testimonial


I am a member of the Arts1 Adult Musical Theatre Choir. From the first day I attended, I was completely impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm of James Grimsey, the Musical Director. From then on, my enjoyment of all aspects of our weekly choir practice has grown and grown. As an individual and as a group, we have been expertly taught and encouraged and have improved beyond anything I could have imagined… I can’t think now what life was like without choir.
