"Both of my kids LOVE the Drum to Learn sessions! I really like how it teaches them musicality, reinforces their brain development, and teaches them about how to express their feelings in a healthy way, all in one session. Krickett and Richard are so great at keeping the kids engaged, even the really little ones. I definitely recommend these classes!"

"My daughter learned so much about rhythm and patterns. More than that though she learned to listen by listening for a beat, etc. She couldn’t wait for drums and had so much fun each week. I noticed leaps and bounds in her development from day 1 till the end. I couldn't recommend this program and Kricket more!! "

"As a director, I loved having Miss Krickett come to our Preschool. She taught the children so much more than drumming (although that is a huge piece of the lesson). The children take away lessons that they continue to use and build upon throughout the year including feeling emotions, respecting others space, memory, bouncing back, trying new things, taking turns, listening, following instructions, being a leader, and continued practice just to name a few. Krickett's classes are impactful, meaningful, and fun. Her lessons are well thought out and prepared with meticulous planning and her years of teaching shine when she is engaged with the children. It is a pleasure to have her and to watch her in action. I recommend her classes to everyone as they greatly benefit all children who attend Drum to Learn!"

We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful team work within our family. Starting under 1 year and watching his growth has been a true blessing."
