“I have to admit, I became quite attached to Ryan’s family while I was working with him. His eldest daughter was just starting to walk and she was completely charming and his partner couldn’t have been more hospitable. Then there was Ryan’s dog, who would be lying right there with us almost every time we had a lesson. I still miss them all now.

Just before we finished working together, Ryan told me there were a couple of things he still wanted to learn. One of those was Eva’s favourite piece of music, which he wants to surprise her with. So I told him, “You know how to reach me” – and I hope he does.”
