Sovereign Hill Music Festival – Managing Director of Mushroom Marketing 1

Energetic, Entertaining & Exciting! Afrobeat introduced members of the audience to the art of African Drumming by inviting them to participate in a group music ‘jam’. 60 or more children & parents participated in the event where traditional barrier between performer and audience was well and truly broken!…

Sovereign Hill Music Festival – Managing Director of Mushroom Marketing 2

The excellent communication skills of Afrobeat, particularly with young children, and their ability to involve all members of the audience made these workshops a highlight of the Festival. It was no surprise that the feedback from was fantastic and I would expect that this experience would live long in their memories.

Cottage By the Sea, Queenscliff – for School Holiday Program LEADERS

Thanks so much it was a great way to start the day off before our meeting.  From all accounts everyone enjoyed the session so thank you.  A lot of fun and a great euphemism for our corporate journey and aspirations to be a harmonious work place.  This was a creative fun approach towards team building…

School Holiday Incursion – Fig Tree Pocket OSHC, QLD

Our facilitator had a lovely presence while working with the children. He was knowledgeable and talented and got the kids really excited about the session. His jumps were incredible – the highest I’ve ever seen!! 

Anglicare, Southern QLD

Thank-you so much for the workshop. The children had such a good time. Nathaniel was professional and engaging. We had parents joining in with the kids, and kids who don’t normally engage in activities did so with this workshop. He made it fun and energetic and the children responded really well. Excellent.

Chelsea Occasional Care – Children’s Week

Nothing but praise from me personally and nothing but praise from the parents who also attended. The children were enthralled. Fantastic and involving. A huge success – Thank-you again.

See all the FUN here!
