Headteacher Testimonial

"I especially love your music - it is so catchy and well presented! We usually sing a lot here, but obviously at the moment are using a lot of signed & subtitled teaching videos so that the children can still get physically involved in the music.

Your songs have really given our school a lift in these difficult times, so please keep up the good work 🙂 "
