  1. I’m devastated. I taught this boy and stayed in touch with him regularly. He was a remarkable soul. Deeply spiritual and creative. A uniquely talented songwriter and social commentator. I am just so sad. Truly heartbroken.

  2. Hi Mr Jeffery, don’t know if you’ll remember me but you taught me too (year above Finn). Your passion for music and students shone through all of your lessons and I’m positive they done nothing but benefit Finn’s creative talents. Wish he knew how great he was. Take care x
