"We have had another superb day with Jade and her wonderful steel drumming workshop! The kids had an amazing time and all of the songs were enjoyable and age appropriate. Jade was excellent with the children and everyone had a chance to have a go - even the teachers! A great performance to finish off that has really boosted the confidence of our children. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to bring a unique cultural experience (and a bit of summer) to their school!"

"The steel drumming workshop that Jade presented was brilliant. It was suitable for all classes and planned to suit this. The children really enjoyed taking part in both the drumming and as part of the audience. Jade had a lovely manner with the children which they all responded to. The assembly at the end was a great idea to show off what they had learnt during the day. I would be interested in this workshop again."

"This experience was amazing. The children were enthralled - both watching & listening and taking part. They enjoyed it so much and everybody had a go. The workshops were well structured and all the children knew what was expected of them at all times. It was lovely to see children working together to perform in the whole school assembly at the end of the day - and staff enjoyed it too! Thank you!"

"We have had a wonderful day and all the children thought it was 'incredible'. Lively modern music with a musical instrument new to the children, made sure they had a fun learning experience. It encouraged team work as well as musical abilities. I would recommend all schools to have these workshops. Today made a memory for the children that they won't forget!"

"Our Year 5 and 6 children started off the academic year with a bang and had an amazing day participating in the drumming workshop. A mixture of contemporary and traditional music had the children engaged and playing the pans brilliantly. The day was topped off with a performance to the whole school. Thoroughly recommended!"
