Testimonials

Be Sharp Beetles is an absolute hit at our Nursery School.  The children love the entire programme, with special enthusiasm for the drumming... I hereby unreservedly recommend Be Sharp Beetles as a quality programme that his both highly educational and incredibly enjoyable for the children. Carol Martin:  Principal Little Lambs Nursery School

The teaching methods are innovative and inspiring.  Your instructors are gentle and have a true understanding of the importance of music in the young child's life.  They also motivate the children to participate in a fun and inspiring manner.  The programme is arranged for maximum benefit of all the children who participate.  The child friendly, logical programme teaches the basics of music in a fun and interactive way. Kym van Straaten: Principal Randburg Montessori

 

Music has always been a part of my life. Without it life would be very different. It is such a privilege to be able to teach children the wonders of music and make it a part of their life. I absolutely believe that music creates “sharp” and “happy” children and that is why I am a part of the “Be Sharp Beetles” Team. I experience the joy with them week by week and would not change this for anything. I am a qualified Music Teacher and also run my own music school. This job has so many facets! I produce the Be Sharp Beetles cd’s and work closely with the Production Company we record all our music with. Be Sharp Beetles Franchisee – Aneli Joubert Alberton

 

My daughter and I have been attending Be Sharp Beetles classes together since she was 10 weeks old. Our Tuesday morning classes have been the highlight of our week. It has been an amazing journey to see how she has developed through music in the past 16 months. I completed my BA Communication degree at UJ in 2000. There after I fulfilled my lifelong dream and became a fight attendant. Then I worked in corporate in London for 2 years. After returning to SA, I fell pregnant and had the great privilege to stay home with my precious angel for 18 months. I decided to buy a franchise in 2009. What a privilege to combine my passion (children and music) with my work! This is the best job ever! Music has always played a key roll in my life. I obtained my Grade 4 piano (Trinity College of London), sang in school choir and a university serenade group. I feel so blessed to pass this special gift of music on to all the little childrenI teach! Come and join in our fun boys and girls!  Be Sharp Beetles Franchisee – Karin Rossouw Randburg

 

It really is amazing to see the impact that music has on children's lives and their development. I love to see how a child changes from initially just observing the class to actually participating and the enjoyment they get out of it. As a mother you want what is best for your children. With my two children being older I wish I knew a few years ago what I know now about the benefits of music and movement. I really think it would have benefited my son who is ADHD. It is so rewarding to see how a child changes every time I see them. It gives me a sense of pride to know I am making a difference at the end of my day. I love all the hugs I get and all the stories I'm told. There are not many careers out there where you are appreciated everyday and are shown in different ways how much they appreciate you being with them. My goal is for the children to have fun while developing and to feel deeply loved.  Be Sharp Beetles Franchisee – Anita Pearson Roodepoort

 

The Be Sharp Beetles classes concentrate a lot on listening skills by doing listening activities.  It is clear that Be Sharp Beetles classes have contributed to Dawie's listening abilities.  At a very early age he's been made aware of listening and giving attention.  These aspects will help him to improve his language and speech due to the fact that he can listen and focus on sounds that make up speech – Occupational Therapist about a Down Syndrome Child
