Carl White 21st February 2001
Dear MusicAtSchool, what an absolutely fantastic website and an excellent idea! As a PGCE student is is often quite difficult to come up with good ideas to inspire the children and know that they will work. This site came with high recommendations and it's not hard to see why!
Eleanor 18th February 2001
This site is fantastic! As a NQT I've spent the first two days of this half term looking for new ways to inspire my KS3 classes. You have some wonderful materials. Thank you.  Quick question: Have you ever tried using music games with KS3? A number of my students are 'turned off' music and I thought some games might help motivate them as well as reinforce ideas. The problem I'm having is coming up with ideas. Many sights and most books consider games for KS1/2. Do you know of any sites or books for KS3?? Thanks.
R. Jerry Adams 12th February 2001
Congratulations! The Awesome Library editors have identified your site as one of the top 5% in the field of K-12 education.  I wish to thank you, on behalf of teachers, students, parents, and librarians everywhere, for making your carefully developed resource available.
Gerard Farrell 11th February 2001
The site looks great and is very easy to get around. I am not working from my own computer at present and am uneasy about downloading things like Adobe, partly because of the amount of memory it may use up and partly because I have had problems previously when trying to download plug-ins.  I look forward to future visits.
Jessica 22nd January 2001
