I can't seem to find the right words to tell you how much your Steel Drum Workshop meant to the kids and me. I was amazed by your talent and your ability to make those kids laugh. They loved the selection of songs you performed, but they really enjoyed getting up to play the instruments themselves. In a single hour, you significantly affected each of those students lives, and that should make you proud. You are a true musician who plays from the heart, and that is not always easy to find. We wish You the very best with all your future gigs. If you ever need a glowing reference, you've got one here at The League School! Keep up the wonderful drumming!

Dear Toby:
I wanted to thank you again for your wonderful Work Shop/performance at Hillside on Monday. It was the perfect way to open our 2008 school year. The boys are still talking about arriving at school that morning and being greeted by you and our headmaster on the steel pan. Your willingness to work with us in our surprise event for the boys was much appreciated.
Thank you also for your patience and cooperation with our boys. They loved learning the history of the steel pan drums. Many of them came up to me later that day and told me of their experience. It was so nice of you to email me the next day with a suggestion for a book for one of the boys. I passed that information along.
Again, thank you for making our opening day of the 2008 school year a success!!
