"THANK YOU SO MUCH for the japanese drumming workshop. I thought Mark was an amazing instructor, he was very calm and had great control, a great attitude and incredible enthusiasm - that we all came away with! We were all really entertained - and the boys went to sleep drumming on their legs! Many thanks for a terrific day."
- Donna, Parent
