Feedback from just a few of the parents, grandparents and teachers who have discovered Tessarose Productions …
"Hi, my baby Millie and I came to your Arrowtown workshop and I just wanted to let you know how brilliant it has been for us. I got the CD and Millie and I do it together quite a bit and now she has started bouncing on her own when the music comes on but also my little boy just loves it. Every night after dinner he asks for the 'special music' and then we spin, act like beans etc. etc. I’m sure we don't always do it how its intended as sometimes we end on the floor laughing at ourselves but anything that we have fun with is a good thing. Thank you so much, we are not a musical family so it has really introduced something new for us."
"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the Kidsfest show at the Shirley Club. I have a 5 year old daughter and a 2 year old son, who had so much fun dancing and singing at your show. They love Colin the Kiwi & enjoy singing your songs (we have a Dancing to the Beat cassette at home which is played often) Thank you for putting on such an energetic & fun show."
"I am appreciating the CD you gave me - Wamma Jam Jive as I will
be doing more music at my primary school with children with delayed development. So many ideas on your website- it is a goldmine! Thank you! I will definitely be ordering some more material soon."

Tessarose Productions have always provided us at Dyer Street Kindergarten,Lower Hutt, with a wide variety of educational, exciting and developmentally appropriate and challenging Music and Movement opportunities!
We use Tessa and Brian's tapes and C.D's everyday and enjoy them as much as the children do. Their songs are fun, catchy and flexible, and meet the needs of our sessions extremely well.
'Brain Gym' in particular has become a daily part of our sessions and routines with the 4 year old children, and they understand the value and meaning behind the actions.
We always look forward to see what Tessa and Brian will come up with next!!"

"Yesterday my husband and I had the pleasure of attending, with our grandsons, your show as part of Kidsfest activities. It was great to walk into the venue and see that numbers had been kept at manageable levels, so much more enjoyable than large numbers of children. I'm a relieving Kindergarten/Early Childhood teacher having been involved in EC all my working life. I just love your CD's and eagerly await your third 'Look at me I'm Moving'. Your presentation was great and Colin the Kiwi a huge hit with our boys."

"Just a quick email to tell you how much we enjoyed your visit to school at MRPS on Thursday. The other teachers were very pleased with the sessions, with one saying you were the best music group they have ever had through, in terms of holding the children's interest, interaction etc.
I was really tickled to read you were an original Invader, Brian! I was a fan!"
