Working with Monique and the Youth as Leaders program is spectacular. The students are energetic in a good way - they were excited to play drums. I had fun and was laughing, so I hope everyone else enjoyed themselves as well. I anticipate enjoying my next drum circle with the Family Learning Center. Thanks for the opportunity to share music with you all!
Rating: positiveTodd-- thank you so very, very much for providing drumming classes/a drumming circle to our two youth groups, Youth As Leaders and the Family Learning Center. I do hope you will come back, perhaps this summer, and grace us with your artistic presence again! I highly recommend Todd! -- especially for youth groups working with younger and school age children. Fondly, Monique Turner-Lopez Director of Service Development Easter Seals Goodwill Industries
