The drumming session was very successful. We were so impressed with the way the teacher managed the children’s energy and excitement and read their needs. The children certainly gained a lot from the experience and we have been able to follow it up with further drumming using our own drums
Belinda -All Abilities Workshop, Ozchild
The drumming was fantastic!!! Both staff and kids loved them. We have a drumming group at our school so it was great for those kids but for all kids. It was great to have it during our Harmony Week celebrations so i will look into it for next year.
Di –Footscray North Primary
The feedback was over whelming! Your performers were adored by students, staff and parents! I have had so many people tell me how fabulous the whole day was! Teachers told me the students were engaged and so well controlled by the presenters – they had them eating out of the palm of their hand! Parents loved the performances at the end of the day as well. It was also noted how easy and organised the guys were, they just hit the ground running with set-up ect. All very positive! Thank you so much for such a successful day, we will be booking you again in the future for sure.
Karen –Roxburgh Park School
Bouba was a complete hit! We absolutely adored having him perform at the staff meeting. He had everyone dancing and he was engaging and funny. What a delightful way to kick off Cultural Diversity week. Thank you again for your organising this special occasion. We will definitely be recommending this to the greater community and organisation.
Heidi English –Cancer Council Victoria
I have been really pleased with what Bouba achieved with our students. It was aimed at their level, was engaging and appropriate. The students really took a shine to Bouba and worked well for him – they were sad to see him leave. Please pass on my thanks to Bouba for his fine work and I look forward to catching up again. Thank you also for your great oversight of the program too, Simon; it is so refreshing to have someone who is highly organized and immediately contactable.
Tim –Carey Baptist Grammar
Our drumming host, Nee was brilliant. He mesmerised 35 children immediately with his engaging manner and kept complete order at all times and allowed the kids to go bonkers at the right time on those amazing drums. It’s one of the best parties we’ve ever had and suitable for all ages. Thank you so much African Drumming, my daughter, Sophia had an absolute ball!
Sophie –Kid's Birthday Party
Just want to pass on our thanks to Jeremy and team for their African Drumming workshop on Tuesday night. Jeremy was very engaging and quickly built rapport with a big crowd. He also linked it well with one of the key themes of the event – launch of our values framework and working together. All staff loved the activity and their mini djembes.
Debbie –Team Building, Medicare Local.
The dance sessions were a great success. Had everyone (management, staff and visitors) up and dancing in the winter sunshine. The performance was outside and the wind howled on that day, but it was sunny. Some of our elderly visitors preferred to watch from the warmth of the living room, through the glass. I look forward to booking them again in the future.
Madelin McGrath –Uniting Aged Care
I have found African Drumming to be great fun as it gives me the opportunity to join together with a diverse group of people for a common purpose. It can be both personally challenging and a relaxing diversion from my regular lifestyle. Going to weekly Community Classes exercises my mind, engages my spirit and opens an avenue for learning about another culture.
Jenny –Beginners Drumming Class
Since first discovering African Drumming at a teacher seminar I have grown to love the simplicity and subtlety of the Djembe. I have my own beautiful 14” Ghana Djembe and have gradually built up my own set of 10” djembes for use with my Grade Five class. This size is very suitable for this age-group. I have found that by including a few of the higher quality Ghana djembes with the more economical Indonesian drums, we achieve a much better ensemble sound. I have now added a pair of Stumpy Duns, some bells and Kis Kas. In the two years that I have been using my drums, I have yet to suffer a breakage, and I look forward to may years of introducing young people to the joys of ensemble.
Alan Kirkman –Grade Five Teacher, Heathdale Christian College
Workshop was excellent by all accounts, students had a great time and the teacher was impressed with both Tim’s skill and how he handled the students. We are looking forward to the next session!
Clare –Sydney MONTESSORI School
On behalf of the Little Doers team we wanted to really thank Sessi Sessi for helping to make our event such a success. Over 300 children ran, raising $30,000 for their 4 charities. The drumming really added to the atmosphere of the day and heightened the excitement of both young and old alike! Many people commented that the African drummers were such a great addition to the morning, making the event so much fun. Due to the success of the event, we plan on holding it again next year!
Lynne Wilson –President, Little Doers Inc.
Firstly I have to say I had a fantastic experience on the Level 1 course on Thursday and Friday evening. Simon explained the rhythms clearly and was engaging. I have already tried some of the rhythms with my Year 7 class and they are loving being challenged. I wouldn’t change anything about the course, I am definitely interested in doing Level 2 and 3 later on in the year.
Theresa –Teacher Training, Sunshine College
We had a wonderful time with Shabba, we danced, sang, laughed and drummed until our hands tingled. The feedback from the children was very positive and they were particularly interested in the photos and information about life in Ghana.
Monica –Woady Yaloak Kindergarten
The African drumming was a huge success and Shabba was a great fit. The children loved it and have been talking about it ever since. I have also recommended your company to many colleagues.
Amy –Olympic Village Preschool
I have had dealings with suppliers in the US and across Australia, and your service is world class in every sense. The care and attention that goes into maintaining the customer relationship is second to none, and your products are equal to those that can be purchased anywhere in the world.

Liz –On our Djembes
Thanks so much for your efficiency and high level of support during my school’s recent drum purchase. They look fantastic and sound even better! The kids are so excited about being part of the drumming experience. I am looking forward to learning through the instructional Cds and at later teacher training courses.
Fiona –Palmers Island Public School
We had an absolutely fantastic time today. All the classes really enjoyed the performance and being a part of it too. Thank you so much and please pass along a huge thank you to your performers!! They were professional, friendly and responded really well to the kids.

Rachel –60th Birthday Party, Mental Health Reserve
Thank you for coming out to our Bentleigh East centre – The children and educators had a wonderful time. I received lots of positive feedback from families and educators at the service because of the unique incursion that you provide, the energy you possessed on the day and catering the program so it was age appropriate. It was a great day and we’d love to have you back at the service one day.
