Huge thanks to Marion Nieuwenhuizen who came and facilitated a thoroughly enjoyable drumming workshop with a client this afternoon!
The team were not expecting it at all and yet took to it like ducks to water, creating their own team rhythm which fully supported the Team Alignment work we've been doing since April.
If you work with businesses with teams and want to suggest something to the management to compliment their team development efforts, I cannot recommend Marion and her energetic style enough!
She has already been invited back to their summer party next year!

Thank you for your excellent drumming facilitation yesterday, we thoroughly enjoyed working with you. Your approach to building the team members' confidence, leading them into creating their own piece of music, etc. was really good. Also, the way you led the team through each stage with complete clarity, was excellent.

Thank-you note from Compassion UK Thank you note: amazing fun

Thank you for another wonderful drumming and dance workshop.
The children really enjoyed it which was shown by the way they interacted and behaved. They were still drumming and singing this afternoon.
I really hope to see you again next year!

Many thanks for your excellent workshops last week - the feedback from staff and children has been very positive! I thought the session I saw was so well paced and enabled all the children to participate, regardless of experience or ability. The final performance was brilliant and engaged the audience despite their excitement at the prospect of half term!
Hopefully you will be able to visit us again in the future.

We loved your workshops! All the children came out with big smiles on their faces saying 'it was amazing, you'll love it' to the next group. The children discovered how every day objects could be used to make music. They had lots of fun whilst learning about how sound is made and how it travels. We also liked the way you introduced them to rhythm in a simple and effective way.
Thank you again.

Thank you so, so much for the brilliant workshop yesterday. The children were absolutely buzzing afterwards! They really enjoyed it and it gives me plenty to follow up on in class too.

Thank you so much for such a fantastic workshop this morning. Your energy and enthusiasm certainly inspired the children and it was a joy to watch their faces throughout the drumming session. The African Dance workshop was also huge fun - it was great to see all the children participate so enthusiastically. Thank you for bringing along the African clothes, they really enjoyed the fashion show. All in all a great morning and fantastic learning experience for all the children - they were buzzing all afternoon!
We look forward to seeing you again next year, if not before....

Marion had a great rapport with the learners. The workshops were fun and full of energy which transferred to the learners, who, by the end of each session wanted to please her with their performance. She challenged the high ability learners on more difficult instruments with complex rhythms and encouraged those who were not so enthusiastic by making sure they were involved with the performance. Marion communicated with the learners in a way that was easy for them to understand and they only moved on to the next step when they were comfortable with their rhythms and instruments.
The students enjoyed the overall experience and gave extremely positive feedback.

We had a fabulous time with you last Sunday and everyone wants to see you again. So come next Easter. I anticipate ringing/emailing you for more drumming.
Your warmth and enthusiasm were excellent and the results of your tuition amazing. Wishing you every success in your business.
