Some of the things people say about my work….
Dear Simon and Mouna,
Many thanks for providing a cultural and refreshing element to the day. Your approach and timings were spot on and got them working as a team. The delegates responded well and you zapped their energy levels up. Hope to work with you very soon and thanks again for such a smooth process.

Simon Webster introduced 40 pupils, aged from between 2 to 8 years old to different percussion instruments, the workings of rhythm and to how to respect the intensity and responses to musical direction.
His musical competence and huge patience enthused the pupils who invested in and respected what was going on.
I can only congratulate Simon on his kindness, gentleness, very calm and serene relationship with the children and on his outstanding competence.

Thank you for a fabulous show! Thank you too for the wonderful singing and musicianship of Mouna. The pupils certainly fell in love with her and are asking when they will be working with you both again.

An amazing show. Staff and pupils alike, felt privileged to be part of this musical journey.

We had the pleasure of having Mr Webster as our percussion teacher for over 5 years. He was able, through his knowledge and teaching method to introduce us to the different cultures and ways of playing percussion (African, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, North African… ).
Also, many of us have children, now aged between 10 and 15 years old, who were taught percussion by Mr Webster for over 8 years. In this time, they played many concerts and made several recordings.
Many of us feel that his music therapy training has greatly contributed to the way he teaches culture and rhythm with children and we regret the fact that he’s leaving…

We are very satisfied with his work, not only during the workshops but also during the show. The children showed a huge commitment to the project and have kept very good memories of it.

Your work with the young people and staff was fantastic and everyone has commented on your professionalism, expertise and ability to motivate your group to rise to a significant challenge with such exceptional and quick results.
Your work with the drummers really did inspire confidence in the group members both to develop their skills and to enjoy themselves doing it.
Staff and young people alike found the course and being part of the parade hugely rewarding and felt it made a great impact on them; for some it was even a life changing experience.

Just to say thank you for your inspiring and energetic input into the drumming workshops at Millennium the last couple of weeks. The feedback from the children and the staff has been so positive. I am keen to do some follow up sessions with the children myself based on your sessions as it is so accessible for all and a wonderful medium to work with.
