They are great bunch of people and try so hard and really enjoy  the company of each other. Our Teacher and her husband run the jams and push us to learn which is what we need. Just life saving in my case has made the world of difference for me. Barry

  TESTIMONIAL

Mrs Simone Gough,

    Thanks for the wonderful lessons you had offered to my son.

The lessons were so easy and fun for a 6 year old to pick up. 

My son has slowly started to enjoy playing the Uke,

he is still learning to move his fingers between notes. 

Thanks again for the classes and the song pdfs.

I wish you all well and I hope lot of kids get an opportunity to learn from you.

And you are a wonderful teacher(I had a good time attending your sessions with my son).

Thanks & regards,

Divya

TESTIMONIAL

School holidays bored?

Not anymore! Hand drumming via Zoom was a wonderful way for my daughter to connect with other children, learn a new skill & have fun, all from the comfort of the lounge room!
Well done Simone on this fantastic initiative, you are a kind & skilful teacher.

 

Kind Regards,

Amba McGoldrick

TESTIMONIAL

Lenny (aged 5) and I are just loving the drumming.

We have participated in Zoom lessons with Simone and she leads us with such kindness and friendliness. It is so fun! We leap around and drum together and it's been a great experience for Lenny and I to share. It's much more enjoyable than wrestling! I also notice how it helps us both to regulate our bodies, especially at night. We will often drum together and the soothing nature of the African drum really helps to settle our bodies before bed.

I love drumming so much and Simone is an awesome woman, who is an awesome teacher.

Love Cherie
