I will definitely be recommending this workshop.” – Samantha Gould, Team Director, Beaconsfield Children’s Hub
“Our organisation worked with Positive Music as part of a team building and celebratory event for an organisation that had formed about three months prior. So we got to know our colleagues better and in a very different setting, but one that highlighted the benefits of working together to create something great. It was a wonderful stress relieving activity also. Loved it”. – EV GP Training , Melbourne.
“Loved it enormously…at the end I was full of energy, enthusiasm and ready to take on the world!” – Sandii Lewis, Loddon Murray Leadership Program

The tutors were really professional and combined teaching us a skill with talking to us about teams and leadership.” – Lisa, Wellington Shire Council
“Very entertaining and fun, provided a great opportunity to get to know our colleagues.”

“Peta Minter of Positive Music recently facilitated a drum circle for our participants at the Gawler Cancer Foundation. She presented her workshop as part of the Mindfulness Music Weekend Meditation Retreat . Within an hour she had engaged every member of the group in creating simple and complex rhythm patterns using a large array of percussion instruments.
Her positive and sensitive nature with the participant, and her obvious knowledge of holding a group, encouraged every member to feel included in these fun filled activities.
She built confidence in members of the drum circle, regardless of their previous musical experience, including participants with mobility issues. Everyone felt included and empowered and the whole workshop was well received with joy and laughter.
I would highly recommend Positive Music for any group building workshop, seminar or retreat and found Peta to be a delight to work with as a co-facilitator.” Michael Johnson, Music and Mindfulness coordinator at the Gawler Cancer Foundation and Delmont Hospital. Resident Harpist and composer, at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne

“We had a wonderful day at YogaHara starting with Peta’s terrific Drum up Wellness workshop. I had never drummed before, nor would I say I was super musical, but I had a fabulous time exploring my own rhythm. This was following by a gorgeous sound bath. I have been to sound baths before but not like this one. It was so peaceful, calming and mesmerising. I have already booked her to return. Thanks Peta.” Gina Mac, Yoga Hara, Drum Up Wellness and Sound Bath, participant
“I adored this workshop. It was amazing, can’t believe it was 90 mins – I must have been away with the fairies! My favourite was the crystal singing bowl – it was really near my head and I felt every single vibration through my body. Fabulous fabulous fabulous.” Clare, Sound Bath, participant
