My personal experience with mentorships
Having both the DipRSL & LRSL set myself apart from other peripatetic & private teachers across the UK & helped me gain & retain students in my private practice & helped me secure lucrative & career defining positions lecturing & writing about music & music education.
I had mentors for both of these qualifications & with their guidance I was able to thrive & complete these qualifications to the highest standard.
