a writer on one of the writer's workshops using music concepts
'... The course was informative and inspirational. Virginia is an experienced and gifted educator with an ability to instil confidence by generating an open and accepting environment which enables free and uninhibited creative expression.'

Alicia Hunt
Composition Seminar Student
Morley College 2013
'I started attending the composition classes at Morley College with Virginia Firnberg at a point in my life when I had again engaged with music & creativity. The classes encouraged me enormously & challenged me from a one minute miniature for solo piano to an art/graphic score project celebrating Cornelius Cardew. The classes inspired me to continue and I have recently completed a Masters in composition after the joy of studying at Morley College.'
