Some Feedback:
"...Kids were engaged throughout the whole lesson and the engagement, participation and excitement was consistent throughout the week. I've never had to do so little behaviour management in a program like this before! It was a dream.

I've never seen so much enthusiasm and passion! It was clear that they were happy to be there and the students could see that and responded to it really well.

Can't thank you enough for coming out - I'm still buzzing!"

~ Neil Druce | Deputy Principal


"Hi guys… Thanks so much for coming on Tuesday. The children absolutely loved it and have been talking about it a lot.  We have had other drumming shows but I have never really heard the feedback from the children like I did after your visit.

Everything went so smoothly and was really well organised. 

Thanks… have a great day!"

~ Selena | Kids Academy
