"At the end of our session with Deke today, there was a huge transformation. Deke so skilfully and successfully shifted these young students from a shy and understated, reserved group to an entirely new world of music and authentic engagement as they formed the vibrant vocal percussion ensemble at the end!! These students are ready for more!! They have a new launch pad!! Lovely to be able to start the next session or a "Phase 2" of this experience to new levels from this point!! Wow"
