Testimonials

The sessions with Will were very successful. The students thoroughly enjoyed them and lots of positive things happened within the group. Lovely to see specific students having such fun whilst learning new skills.

Janet - Ravenscliffe School / Teacher

Good use of percussion instruments. Gave students the chance to play the instruments and not just listen and watch demonstrations.

Janet - Ravenscliffe School / Teacher

The lesson pace good - not too fast and lots of variety - enough to keep all students engaged and involved. Our students needs were always a priority to them.

Will makes Anna's drumming lessons fun, creative and full of variety. He inspires our daughter with his enthusiasm and technically she has improved hugely.
