Three excellent soloists, Heloise West, Jonathan Waterworth and James Quilligan, joined the choir for the Mass. The Shaldon Sinfonietta was led by Anna Cockroft, and further accompaniment came from Cor van der Wijngaard on piano and organ.
"I have been singing for a long time and had some setbacks in 2017 resulting in me losing my confidence in my voice. Going to Jon changed that and made singing fun again. He crosses the T's and dots the I's. Love it!"
"Your influence on those kids goes a long way. The School is so lucky to have you."
"Thanks to you JW for all your support. Students are so lucky to have you."
"Thanks for giving your students such amazing opportunities"
"I was astounded at how far everyone had come in such a short amount of time since I last saw them perform!"
" Thank you for making this year the best ever. I really appreciate everything that you've done for me."
" I would like to thank the staff, but especially Mr. Waterworth who has inspired and engaged my daughter in ways I have never seen before. He has helped her to grow in confidence and provided her with fantastic opportunities. He is a true asset to your College."
"Jonathan is a dedicated and professional teacher of music - the workshops for gifted and talented children that he has developed are innovative and original - lets have more ....!"
"Having known Jonathan for a number of years now in my capacity as a peripatetic instrumental teacher, I can confirm that he is easily the best Head of Music I have ever worked for."
"In addition to being extremely good at his job, Jonathan is also friendly, helpful, approachable and sympathetic to any problems that may occur. He also has a good sense of humour (very important in this job!!) "
"The feedback I get from the students about Jonathan is also extremely positive. I have yet to meet a student who doesn't like him, both as a teacher and as a person.
"I have known Jonathan since I became music adviser for Devon in 2002. He is keen to maintain an up to date understanding of music education and regularly attends CPD conferences. He has participated in Department for Education pilots such as the National Music Partnership Programme. He considers possible career developments when opportunities have arisen and is open to change."
"Thank you for giving up your time to teach me after College and encouraging me to play in the concerts. I am very grateful for everything you have done for me."
"You have given up so much of your time to your students and it shows."
