We recently had Sarah, from Julie Wylie Music come to run a wee music session at my daughter’s second birthday party. Zahara beamed from start to finish at the incredibly engaging songs and activities Sarah had them do. All of her wee friend’s Mums have since come back to me to tell me it made them realise how much their child loved music. I was moved to see how much my daughter loved her music party, and I loved being able to join in with her. I would thoroughly recommend Sarah to anyone in the future. Thank you, from Us.
