School Visits & Testimonials

  • Turramurra HS

    “It was an amazing day, three year groups; Years 9, 10 & 11 participated and learnt that if they worked together that could create something extraordinary. It was a concrete example of what can be achieved through teamwork and the sharing of talents.’

  • Baulkham Hills North PS

    Thanks for a most fantastic day. The energy you displayed and the excitement that you generated in the children was just amazing. .
    Graeme Green – Principal

  • De La Salle Boys High School Ashfield

    Thank you once again for the wonderful performance and workshop that you gave us on Wednesday, it was such an affirmative experience for all of the boys. Yacou and yourself are an amazing team. I think Yacou in an excellent role model for young men, and he gave some of our students the encouragement they needed to shine as dancers and musicians. Some of the photos have turned out beautifully (particularly the dancing!).

  • Bankstown Girls HS

    Every photo taken at the Drumbeats musical experience revealed our girls smiling faces. Every student was engaged for the duration of the concert and they loved being involved instead of just watching and listening to a performance. A fantastic opportunity for any student at any age!
    Karen Burke, Music Teacher

  • Hoxton Park PS

    A truly mesmerising, uplifting experience! The drumming was awesome and the students were totally involved in creating rhythms. The opportunity for every student to play one of the magnificent drums sets this apart from other performances. It was hands on for all, not a select few. The look of joy and accomplishment on the faces of the children was sensational. Just fantastic!

  • The McDonald College
    Drum Beats was an inspiring motivating, stimulating, high energy experience involving every student and teacher.
    With 50 drums on the floor and every child having a turn on them at once, it was quite a sound coming out of The School Hall.
    The students were totally involved in performing'
    and creating rhythms and everyone was engaged and engrossed for the duration of the concert with a hands on experience in percussion performance using the drums as well as their body.
    It was great! Well done Angela and Rob on a truly professional performance.

    Infinite  thanks to Angela and co for their generous and mind blowing,  energising experience yesterday!!

    Your musicians and Angela's pocket rocket style set the tone for an excellent whole school experience ....everyone was buzzing all day long !!

    Thank you so much for a fabulous performance. We had 206 children attend and every single one was wowed by the performance. It was amazing to watch over a hundred kids perform with such enthusiasm, all at once on the drums. Our special needs children also participated with gusto! Thanks again.
