Australia Day, February 3, 2007: “You did well to keep the audience interested throughout the whole program, which shows that it was well balanced. There was plenty of opportunity for participation. I received many compliments on your behalf, from parents and children alike. They were hyped up for this presentation and they were not disappointed.”

Children’s Day Around the World, May 5, 2007: “Your presentation was just what I wanted for Oak Harbor Library. It attracted a diverse group of people and educated families in an entertaining way about other cultures. Your audience seemed very interested in your program, which was definitely for elementary age children (exactly what we wanted). Your crowd control was very good and there was excellent audience participation especially from children but also with adults.”

Exploring the Andes Through Music, Dance, and Song, 2/24/2007: “I was concerned about teaching the kids to dance in that short of time, but you pulled it off! The kids loved it and I heard several of them singing the song as they were leaving the library a half hour after the program ended! You manage the audience well and the kids were eager to participate. Not a dull moment. I also appreciated how you encouraged the children and grown-ups to try the panpipes but did not make anyone feel badly if they chose not to try.
