Mario and Veronica really helped me with some new ideas and things that I can change around and really improve it and bring my show to another level.”

Dave Richards


Here is what some  students have to say about previous School of Busking Courses

 “An incredible experience.  As a teacher with more then 20 years in the classroom, I know the amount time and effort it took to pull this off and they did it in every way!  Nothing was held back – all questions answered and all subjects covered! 

Douglas Kennedy


“After the first night of ‘theory’ my head was overflowing with all the information and ideas presented to us. On the Saturday we began to put the ideas of building a crowd, entertaining a crowd and passing the hat together into shows, under Mario’s guidance. On the Saturday I went from having no show at all to having a complete show (though it still needs ALOT of work).

On the Sunday, after a run through of the performances, we headed out onto the streets to perform. It was such a buzz! And it is thanks to Mario that I got out there and did it, not sure that I ever would without his help (thanks Mario).

Aiden Whyte

“…..Mario and Veronica who organised the course, have done so well – they have put so much work and passion into the weekend and I have enjoyed it immensely”
