We booked Andres and the "Discover & Learn the Rhythms of Puerto Rico" for our after-school program, grades K-5. Andres was so comfortable working with kids and did an amazing job bringing this presentation to life via Zoom. He generously shared his love of music and Puerto Rico with our students. The presentation was thorough, interactive, fun and joyful. I highly recommend this presentation for school groups!

Our team had a lot of fun TRYING to drum. What would be the opposite of two left feet? Two left hands?! Despite our lack of rhythm and coordination, we still had a lot of fun trying to keep the beat. Andres was very nice and made the experience quite pleasant. We all learned a little about music in Puerto Rico and he taught us some basic skills. I think this activity was definitely out of all our comfort zones, but Andres made it enjoyable for us. I recommend this activity for people who just want to have a good laugh, not take themselves seriously and have a good time drumming (or trying to drum) with others!

Discover the Rhythms of Puerto Rico was a fun and interesting experience for our group to learn and relax in the middle of a three day retreat. Thanks for the great energy, the fun, the responsiveness, and the flexibility!!

We set an event with Andres for a team work event. He was very professional, very kind and we had a lot of fun. We learned about music rhythms, Puerto Rican culture, and got to play along. A wonderful experience.

We had such a wonderful experience!! This was a work teambuilding activity and it was the perfect activity! It gave us a nice break in the day to form a closer team, have a lot of laughs, and we learned so much about the music history and culture of Puerto Rico! It made me a little homesick for visiting but it also gave me a connection to what I love about Puerto Rico! Andres was an outstanding host and provided a great experience! I would totally recommend! We also left with some awesome picture souvenirs and a great playlist. Thanks you so much for the fun experience!
