Music For Schools Customer Reviews:

Hillsgrove Primary, Bexley
Five Star Customer Review

The children enjoyed learning the script and songs with staff and parents saying it is one of the best performances ever. Thank you for providing us with such a well written and fun retelling of the Easter story. Obviously it is a sensitive issue and I think your story dealt with it really well.
Thanks again.

Loreto Convent School, Gibraltar
Five Star Customer Review

One of our performances was in the presence of the Bishop of Gibraltar who was full of praise for the 'refreshingly innovative' way that the story was portrayed. We would strongly recommend it to any school looking for a fresh take on the Passion play.

Engayne Primary, Havering
