"I would just like to say how much our year 1 classes enjoyed yesterday's concert. It was such a wonderful experience for them to see the experience and hear the music live. They were really enthusiastic about it after and I can wait to teach them more next week."
"All of them were wonderful, really brilliant and I hope that we can find a way to support the continuance of this somehow." C Dyer Sevenoaks School
"I think the concert was absolutely incredible, I have been telling all my friends about it! It was so informative and fun for the children. We bought the cd of Peter and the Wolf at the concert and my daughter listens to it constantly , always referring back to the instruments we saw."
"Perfect venue. Nice relaxed atmosphere and even the smallest of concert goers were made to feel very welcome. The audience participation really helped to keep her focused. There was lots of movement and opportunities to get up and down so I didn't feel she was restricted to sitting quietly for the whole session. It was just the right length too!"
"By providing narrative and pictures and the kids being free to move, they are quite able to manage the length of the music"
"I love that it is so interactive to keep the kids attention and so informal so they feel free to enjoy themselves and therefore don't get bored."
"What you do is fantastic. Please keep going!"
"So good to have the opportunity to take kids to live music events like this."
"Both of my children loved it. My six year old is still playing his straw reed and my four year old is listening to the CD almost every day!"
"Very engaging and educational for children and adults alike"
"We will continue coming to the concerts and wish you lots of luck in taking it from strength to strength. This sort of education is so important. We are looking forward to the announcement of the next concert."
"My son (when about 8) was reluctant to come to the Proms concert, but when he got there he particularly enjoyed the fact the audience were involved, waving flags and having a go with and learning about the instruments."
"My 3 year old loves Kidenza concerts as does my 10 year old. It's great to have a activity they can both go to and thoroughly enjoy. We love the relaxed atmosphere and the fact it is OK for the children to dance and go with the music without sitting still in silence. Please keep them coming!"
"Really like the interactive bits where the children can get involved. They really liked blowing through the straws and following the conductor around."
