Testimonials

“Thank you so much Benjie for a fabulous performance at Newcastle Middle School on Thursday!
Our students have moderate to severe special needs, predominantly autism affecting their communication skills.
You effectively engaged them for over an hour with your drumming beats, storytelling through music and dance.
It was fabulous to see our students having so much fun together in the drum circle and participating in the dance beat in the middle of the circle.
All staff commented on how wonderful your performance was and how happy and uplifted their students were afterwards.
We would highly recommend your performance to other schools with students of similar learning disabilities.
Would love to book you in again!”

” We have received excellent verbal feedback from staff and parents for all of the workshops.  The kids had a ball, and staff mentioned it was not only fun for the kids, but also a learning experience.

I just spoke with the staff at Swansea and they were thrilled with the workshop. It ran smoothly, and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely present more workshops at the libraries.”

“Just wanted to let you know how FANTASTIC Benjie was today with all the kids!!! He was so amazing and they all had the best time… so did I! Couldn’t stop grinning and laughing …. The look on the kids faces were priceless…. they loved it and one boy continued drumming on a stool in the classroom when we went back up to class“
