"Andy and Maxine are brilliant, my kids have been going from being little. Excellent."

"Ishmael has been coming since he was 2 and Suraya came along in her car seat at 6 months! It has been part of their growing up. Starting with simple percussion instruments and learning rhythms to now playing The Beatles on is an amazing journey. Thank you Maxine & Andy for making it so much fun!"
