Review of one of Una May's workshop: “Your workshop , your singing, your songs, just you, gave us the most wonderful experience. You are an extraordinary teacher, I’ve tried so many times to catch those rhythms and I’ve never come close, but what ever it is you do, you get inside us and give us that lilt, the confidence to let ourselves leave our doubts behind and just sing it. I will carry that day for many years to come. ”-Frances.

      Review of Una May's last workshop in Melton: “Una May gave around 70 of us a most wonderfully liberating day of singing on Sunday, March 8th at Gloucester House, Melton Mowbray. Almost all the tickets had sold in advance - and I'm not surprised! Word had obviously got round that this would be a day not to be missed, and it surpassed all our expectations.” - Read the rest on the Global Harmony website
