“The children absolutely loved the workshops! A perfect introduction to our new book. It was great to see the children enjoying themselves and learning in an exciting and creative way. They are still talking about it now!”
Grace Jeal, Year 5, Teacher/English Coordinator, Wisborough Green Primary, April 2018
"Rarely have I seen a young audience so engaged and enraptured. Your beat-boxing and story-telling session was a real highlight of the day, and provided the perfect contract to the other children’s activities that were included as part of BookFest at The Hurlingham Club. Thank you so much for your willingness to participate and your total professionalism as a guest presenter- I’m not surprised that you are in much demand."
Laurence Croneen, Founding Director of Deeoer Blue Limited - Europe & Asia - February 2018
“Lots of positive feedback from the Teachers, about how exciting and engaging it’s been and a really lovely buzz around the school.”
Rosie Loftus (Literacy Leader - Halsford Park Primary, East Grinstead - February 2017)
"We had such a wonderful day with Ollie, he tailored the music to meet our children's needs and made it fun and exciting for all to take part. All the children and adults were so engaged!!! We had wonderful results with our children's writing after Ollie's sessions as he brought the stories to life and gave the children strategies to remember their content through catchy tunes and easily remembered rhymes. A day that we have all been talking about for weeks afterwards, come back soon Ollie!!!!"
Marie Barkley (Class Teacher, Year One, Sudbury Primary School, Wembley - July 2017)
