Daryl is friendly and was happy to help out wherever needed on a busy day. Daryl did a brilliant job and I would definitely recommend him. Thank you, Daryl.”

“Without a doubt YOU (Daryl) are a major reason why last night went so well! I can’t thank you enough – you put us all, me included, at our ease, and your management of the rehearsal (in easy bites) was perfect. I learned so much as well, above and beyond the signing of the poem. I have already had feedback for choir members eager to sign your praises…… “
