Fantastical perfectly pitched musical education
We listened to this in the car on the way to school. Myself and my two girls age 10 and 6 were laughing, engaged and completely hooked. Absolutely brilliant. Fantastic script written by great writers and performed by a wonderful cast. David Walliams has so much energy and enthusiasm and it inspires the children. Can’t wait for next week!
My kids loved this and found out some cool history of music as well as giggling at David and his helper. we will be tuning in daily to catch the rest.
Great for little ones
Amazing! Just the right level for my 8 year old!👍🏼
