"I stumbled upon your music story tapes when I was about ten years old. My father used to take my sister and I out to the best CD shop in Singapore where we could buy one item per week (his gift to us). I bought one cassette tape out of curiosity ( Nurse Goose)  and loved it so much that my sister and I looked forward to bedtime so that we could listen to the stories. I asked my  father for every tape on the shelf each week until I had your entire collection.

We live in Hong Kong now and I've recently had my own children, Zahra is four and Reyka is five months old. I was delighted to find your stories on our Apple Music subscription (fantastic, no more rewinds :)). Zahra now listens to any story she wants at bedtime and we have avid conversations about the characters. She's begun reciting all her favourite lines which makes me smile and reflect on what I was like.

I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know that your stories never get old for me and that my husband and children are now your new fans. Every story book I read to my children are with "Ann Rachlin gusto"! 

I used to speak publicly for my work and I think your voice and speaking rhythm has always been there at the back of my head. Thank you for being my vocal and storytelling inspiration; and your stories going digital allows me to share that with my family.

My very best regards,

I just wanted to thank you for 'A Musical Journey to the Moon'.

It was played some time in the early 90s during my year 2 music lesson.  My mother bought it for me after I raved about  it for weeks afterwards.

Not only did it start a lifelong fascination with space but also for classical music.

For the last couple of decades all I could remember was that I had an amazing tape that I'd listen to at bedtime and go on a journey.

But after a little bit of research I found out more. And low and behold, it's on Spotify!Currently listening to it and I'm in floods of tears. I'm 6 years old again.

Many thanks, Ann. This was needed!

"I was raised on your tapes, to the point where I hear your voice in my mind whenever I listen to the musical pieces you narrated! I myself now work as a writer, poet and storyteller, working with both young and adult audiences and I want to thank you for your impact on my life and my appreciation of music and story. In my mind you are one of the great idols of my childhood!"

"I still play in bands, playing rock music, pub gigs and sing every week in a classical choir they set up at UCS, singing Bach, Mozart, Verdi, Purcell, Poulenc, Bernstein and the greats - I owe it in good part to you. I still remember as if it were yesterday, listening to you telling the Sinbad the sailor story to the strains of Rimsky Korsakov, while eating jam sandwiches - very Proustian, I owe a lot of this to you, Ann, so I hope we can stay in touch."

My name's Sam Wilson. I was lucky enough to be involved with your classes (now many) years ago in St. John's Wood..........

I studied at the Guildhall and graduated winning the Lord Mayors Prize (an award spanning music, drama and technical theatre- awarded to an outstanding student). I've since enjoyed orchestral and ensemble work with the Royal Opera House, English Chamber Orchestra, CBSO and London Contemporary Orchestra. I'm most passionate about contemporary music performance, and am trying to involve myself in as many new music and new opera performances as possible. I also have 3 longer term commitments- a hip hop comedy group with whom I've been able to tour the world and perform at many music festivals, a collaboration with a composer/producer which allows me to compose, and I recently joined the UK percussion ensemble 4-Mality. The variety inherent to percussion is what fascinates me. I've also been able to honour an early interest in drama by specialising in highly "theatrical" and experimental solo percussion performances.

The only reason I'm telling you all this is that I believe the experiences you passed on to me have fuelled and shaped the way I've related to music- throughout my whole journey so far. You taught me to be fascinated by music, to be excited and enthralled. To find ways to understanding and interpreting music. I've never doubted or erred in relation to the joy and curiosity I have towards music, and  I want to thank you sincerely for fostering this attitude in me.
