“Musicians Bernie Hickey and Katy Addis have been working with and playing for children for a long time – and it shows.
    Herald Sun 2013

    Because your program was story-driven, the students have retained an understanding of the content well after the performance. The content itself is broad but musical, brass-specific, and intrinsically entertaining.
    Fintona Girls School

    I loved everything, as did even my least musical staff. Top marks for content, presentation, passion and organisation. Thanks guys.

    "10/10 - The light hearted approach to core aspects of music appreciation were deftly presented and seemingly effortlessly performed. Fantastic!"
    Melbourne Girls' Grammar School

    The group ‘Brass Bedlam’ put on a fantastic show for year 7, and I personally, enjoyed it thoroughly! Not only did they put on a great show with all of the instruments, but with the comedy also making the show all the more interesting. Year 7 student

    10/10 - . The show provided curriculum teaching points around history, music, English and technology. The students were highly engaged in the show ….even a few weeks on they still talk about parts of the show in relation to something they are learning or thinking about

    10/10 - The students facial expressions said it all – completely delighted and engaged! I had teachers coming up to me for days after the show saying unprovoked how wonderful it was.
