“Thank you for all the teaching and energy. I have
really enjoyed your enthusiasm and talent. The different instruments you play
are amazing! The experience I have had will stay with me for the rest of my
life. My favorite instrument
was the Agogo bells. Brazil sounds like an
awesome place to visit.”

Wow, what a workshop! You are amazing! The
students (most of them teachers) just loved your performance, participatory
segments, and words to them. One marching band director said to me that he
was convinced that his band could be energized on the field if he could learn
and then teach to them ways of sparking of their pieces, Brazilian-style".

"I just wanted to let you know how much fun
today’s assembly was. The students and I loved it! So many students were
involved with it, actually everyone with all of the clapping and shouting and
dancing at the end. It was very engaging with wonderful music, bright colors,
the dancing, etc. I loved how the performers moved throughout the audience. It
was great! My students talked about it on the way back to class and in class for
a long time. When a student came in late who had been out all morning, many
students said, “You missed it! The best assembly!” We all need more of that kind
of active engagement with performers and just pure joy! Thank you for arranging
