What people are saying...

  • Thank you so much for spending time with us today and leading sessions for many of our pupils.
    Janet Tidmas - Principal & Director of Phase, Milestone Academy - Longfield

    The feedback I have had is that all the pupils engaged (which is amazing in itself) and staff learnt some things about the pupil's abilities with regard to rhythm etc that they were not aware of before. A huge thank you from all of us.

  • Children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and it was suitable for all children of all abilities.
    Stephanie Taylor - Assistant Head of KS1, Hoo St Werburgh Primary School

    Phil was enthusiastic and made the workshop fun and engaging for the whole time. During the workshop, children were given a variety of instruments to play and they loved the different creatures used to help them remember the different patterns taught. After the workshop, children discussed how much fun they

    Emily Gell - Year 3 Teacher, Hoo St Werburgh Primary School

    When my class found out they were attending a drumming experience, they were super excited and the workshop certainly lived up to their expectations.

  • Girl’s Friendly Society
    Sandra Carter, Group Leader, Girl’s Friendly Society

    Phil came to do a drum circle session with my group of girls aged 6-10. They had a great time and joined in with a great deal of enthusiasm, even the shy ones! Feedback from parents was hugely positive. The girls have asked when he is coming again.

  • The drum circle is a unique musical experience where people of all abilities can work together to produce something very satisfying.
    Ann Baron, Dartford Science and Technology College

    It proved to work very well at my school (Dartford Science and Technology College) where groups of mixed ages and across different key stages enjoyed what was for most, their first encounter with many of the instruments provided. The overwhelming sense of achievement was summed up by the unanimous and

  • Phil did a short demonstration at a networking meeting I attended.
    Sharon Cresswell, Craniosacral Therapist

    Phil started with Boom Whacker demonstration involving all 30 people present then divided the room in to sections and sorted them in accordance with the colour and musical note of their Boom Whacker. He then gave a demonstration of body rhythm, hand clapping and foot stamping explaining that the demonstration

  • A brilliant experience for our Year Six children
    Diane Enfield, Maundene School

    Phil’s session had them drumming from the first minute – absorbing rhythm and deepening their concentration and listening skills, while they thought they were just having fun! Great training for teachers too. Phil’s passion for bringing rhythm and music to children is infectious!

  • Liz Norton

    Phil is a truly inspirational person and a joy to know. Not only is he an outstanding musician, he is also a remarkable public speaker and innovative business man. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Phil to companies looking for motivational and team building workshops.

This is just a snap shot of the variety of events that we facilitated

We have gained support from Morrison’s Supermarket and Gillingham Football Club for this national event and we, along with many music schools, private teachers and retail outlets, give people all over the country the […]

Dartford Science and Technology College

This was a full day of circles. Three in the morning, and two in the afternoon. The students were lead in by their teachers a class at a time. Schools for us are the most challenging due to the personality cross section. We get shy and confident plus there is always the “over confident” element […]

Social Day

This is an event for social media learning. I was invited to be a keynote speaker with my presentation called Small Steps. I linked rhythm to learning skills and social media, demonstrating how taking small steps can lead to achieving a great social media profile and help to develop knowledge across all social media platforms.
