What People Say.


“Wow, wow, wow. Just home from a Drumming class.

I’d have to say that Benjie is the most genuine, patient and enlightened individual I’ve met in a long time. I think it’s fair to say that I’m the worst and most ‘unco’ drummer he has had to date, yet he was patient and offered genuine support.

If you’re looking for something fun, inclusive and different, give it a go. You won’t be sorry. “

– Vicki Childs

“Never felt so empowered and enthused what an inspiring soul. Can’t recommend this enough. Everyone should have a shot at finding the beat”
