Your visit to Naramake School was wonderful. I bought one of your CD’s and my kids just love it. They listen to it every night at bed time they must know every song or story by now, they are always singing the songs. We are also trying to make some of the instruments. I just wanted to say thank you and please keep up the good work.
An incredible day of drums, songs and stories! The workshops and performance were outstanding! The staff surveys we have received have been extremely positive, and I have heard reports of many new instruments from kids who visited your website that evening…Thanks again!Linda WinzerLyme Consolidated School PTO

Our experience with Mark Shepard was a complete success. The performance was first rate and our students and teachers enjoyed a wonderful and creative day. Mark was a delight to work with from planning to performance.
I would never have imagined your performance could truly be as breathtaking had I not been experiencing it myself!Patty Langer, WoodstockES
The show and your talents far exceeded what I thought I had booked for the presentation.Peggy Sheehan, PTO, Cultural Arts CommitteeBethlehem Elementary School
A Wonderful assembly! The performance was captivating. The kids were mesmerized from the time they entered the auditorium. The haunting sounds he played caught their attention and kept them engaged throughout the performance. His music and storytelling tied into our curriculum and we loved that it touched on how different cultures influence each other.Paula O’Brien, West District School, UnionvilleCT
One Student said, ‘Mr. Shepard is a master teacher. Language Arts, Geography, Music and even Creole were included in his performance of the Drum of the Elephant King.’ I thought her comment exemplified how truly impressive your performance was.Tara Flores, Oliver Middle School, LawrenceMA
