"My children have not just learnt to play an instrument with Octave8 Academy, they have developed self confidence. The skills & personal developments they have made astounds me, I cannot recommend Ric & his team highly enough. Enrolling our children into music lessons at Octave8 (guitar & keyboard) has been the best thing we have done for our kids (aged 6 & 7)."
