"Peter Crann did a 6 week course with all classes in our school using drums, boomwhackers and body percussion. His infectious enthusiasm and passion for music is a joy to behold.   If you are looking for something that will bring inclusion, participation, enjoyment and learning, talk to Peter.  You won't regret it!"

"Recently we have had a drumming workshop. Everyone from the T.Y. year took part in this workshop throughout the day. The drums we used were from all around the world the main amount came from Africa which were made in the traditional way. By the end of the day the groups had produced great sounds which were heard all over the school. All over this day was a good and fun experience. With thanks to Peter & Co,"


Tommy Cradock,

"All of us  in Scoil Ursula Sligo....pupils and teachers.... very much  looked forward each year to Peter's visit. His love of Samba drumming is very evident and his enthusiasm is infectious. All  classes from Junior Infants to 6th actively participated in and thoroughly enjoyed  Peter's workshops."

"I have finally had a chance to get some testimonials from our Transition Year students relating to your workshop. Out of approximately 30 students surveyed all responses were very positive. Their only complaint was they would have liked more time! Maybe something for me to keep in mind for next year's planning. The following are three quotes from the evaluations."

"From my point of view as TY Coordinator, I would say WeDrum has been a pleasure to work with.  Easy to contact, quick to respond to emails/phonecalls and accommodating.  Students loved the workshop and it appealed to all - not just those interested in music."

"Peter Crann undertook a series of Samba Drumming Workshops for us. The group were instantly turned on to the Samba rhythms and to Peters passion and intelligent teaching methods and they thoroughly enjoyed the course. The group showcased their skills as part of their float at the annual St. Patricks Day Parade and were awarded "Best Float" on the day. I would like to thank Peter and Itchyfeet for their considerable contribution and I recommend them most highly."

"I really enjoyed the samba drumming, I thought Peter was very well informed and I really liked how he got us all up and involved. It was one of my favourite things we've done this year."



"I thought it was very fun and interesting- it was great we got to participate so much."




"I thought the samba drumming was very good! I really liked how he played and showed us how to play different instruments other than the drums."



"I thought the workshop was really good. It was really fun and I learnt a lot from it. I loved listening to him playing the instruments, and it was really fun getting to play ourselves."




"I thought is was so much fun, a few of us wanted to start a band when we got to all play on different drums and instruments!"



"I thought the samba drumming was really good.I don't have an interest in music or play an instrument so I was surprised at how good it was.The instructor was really funny also."



"I found the Samba Drumming very interesting. Everyone got involved and
made some samba music with different drums and percussion instruments.
My favourite instrument was the hang drum because it made such a
strange sound. I found this drum interesting as there are so few in Ireland."

"Thank you so much for all your help. The committee of Carrick Carnival 400 and the people of Carrick were so impressed with your efforts. Your ability to entertain crowds and impromptu performances through town as the Sambananas were some of the most memorable of the festival. (Not to mention value for money!) Everyone was talking about you and your wonderful crew! We really all enjoyed your presence and the atmosphere you generated We look forward to having you back again for future festivals. "
