"We had the great privilege of showing our F.S. production of ‘Song and Rhyme at Christmas Time’ and our KS1 production of ‘Sounds like a Nativity.’ For once we were able to show plays which truly reflected the Catholic stance. The music and script were really sensitive to the needs of a Catholic school. I applaud all you have done to bring our faith alive through music and drama, Thank you."

"Dear Mrs Kee, I wanted to write a brief note to say thank you for writing such a wonderful Catholic Easter performance. It was wonderful to see the children enjoying their rehearsals but this was nothing to how they performed on the day. The music really brought the children together sharing a production which truly reflected our Catholic mission. Thank you. I look forward to more of your wonderful plays."

"Sally is an extremely talented school music teacher and inspires the children to have a passion for music lessons, singing, concerts and school plays. Being a Catholic school, we have regular hymn practice which Sally runs and it has helped us to deliver wonderful soulful hymns during masses and other religious services. The parents are constantly amazed by her talents too and cannot believe that Sally wrote the KS1 and KS1 Christmas and Easter plays! She is enthusiastic during choir practice, teaches with vitality and zealous flair. She was an absolutely reassuring and delightful person to work with during the year 5/6 end of year performance constantly re-writing, editing, and improving the scripts, actions and songs. Such fun! She goes above and beyond what is asked of her and should have her own shows in Leicester Square! We love having her in school and could not do without her. Thank you Sally! X"

"Thank you Sally for composing a wonderful song for our Foundation Stage class. ‘The Boogie Woogie Pet Shop’ was perfect for our Pets topic. The children enjoyed making up actions for the song and even wrote a final verse about their class pet fish. The song has really captured the children’s interest and they have been singing and performing your song during child initiated learning. Thank you once again."

This testimonial relates to Boogie Woogie Petshop
"With striking melodies, Sally brings us to an attentive openness to the age old events of Christmas and Easter, Our Christian knowledge and beliefs are opened up for us with drama, stirring music and a dash of humour. These pieces, written for children are child and adult leader friendly. There are new and varied twists causing us both smiles and serious thoughts. So, points to ponder for children and leaders. Parents also go away with serious levity. Enjoying the gentleness of music in the Sounds Like a Nativity musical I was pleased with the cohesion of songs and activities. It is an endearing piece with just enough sentimentality. The Easter Drama ‘Easter Roles and Rocks’ particularly drew me in with its educational and entertaining lyrics. Musically it keeps you alert and some words spoken and sung expound an edge of compassion. The compelling will of God sears its way through to the joyfully proclaimed end. The gentle but real interaction of Peter and Judas is handled well and thoughtfully. I would consider the Easter production for both primary and secondary schools. There would be no hesitation for me to use it within an adult/parish setting. It does indeed have ‘Rocks and Roles’ for all of us."
Fr. Michael Mannion St Thomas More R.C. Church, Wheathampstead, Herts

"Sally wrote 'Will Shakespeare Rocks’ as part of our Year 5/6 end of year performance. Quoted by many parents as being one of the best productions they’ve ever seen, this was undoubtedly helped by Sally’s adaptations, including composing ‘Will Shakespeare Rocks’ and many other pieces for the show. The song was so well liked by staff and children, that it was used again as part of a new cantata written by Mr Burrell for performance at the Hertford and Ware Primary Schools' Music Festival in March at the Drill Hall in Ware to celebrate 400 years of Shakespeare. Sally is a fantastic composer, with this number being one of my personal favourites. "

It represents our school in how we believe in Jesus. It makes me feel joyful and happy. The tune is really uplifting. It gives a strong message. Makes us feel all together as a family.

We performed it with 60 nursery and reception children, who really loved it, especially the train guards dance and whistle blowing. They learnt the songs well and enjoyed performing them.

"I am an Early Years teacher and have the great fortune to work with Sally Kee, our music teacher. Not only has she written a school song, Nativities for F/S and KS1, an Advent Service and two Easter plays for KS2 (all of which are of a very high standard) but she writes original songs for special occasions and themes throughout the school year e.g. ‘A Song for Mary’ (written for our May Procession),’Beginning of Term Song’ (linking with our topic on new beginnings) and two fantastic Chinese New Year songs to name but a few. I would highly recommend Sally’s music. The children and staff really enjoy our music sessions and parents and visitors always comment on the high quality of music in the school."
J. Landers, St Joseph’s R.C. Primary School, Hertford. November 2013
"St Joseph’s School Easter Production 2014 Sitting in the School Hall, I wait in anticipation to watch my fifth Easter production. I wonder how the famous Easter Story will be retold this time. Mrs Kee always breathes new life into her Easter (and Nativity) shows, enabling the children to really get to know the people who lived in Jesus’ time and to understand the events that they lived through. This year sees some children travelling back in time to the Holy Land. They witness the events of the final week of Jesus’ life; Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, the garden of Gethsemane, the crucifixion of Christ and the resurrection of Christ. All are brought to life by the children. The children who travel on the time-train make thought-provoking comments about what they see. The elements of sadness are tempered with scenes of light-heartedness and catchy songs. The Easter story is portrayed in a way that educates the children. As for the audience, we revel in the children’s acting, dancing and singing, whilst being reminded of the important themes of our Catholic faith. Louise Lear "

"I particularly liked the way the Roman Soldiers went along to a Jewish School to hear about Jewish customs. There were several beautiful melodies including the solo Jesus sang at the Last Supper. The Judas solo was very poignant where the melody complemented the lyrics beautifully. High quality play, high standard performance and high entertainment value. What the children produced amazed me!"

"I've used the brilliant ‘Barmy Roman Army’ song in several class assemblies. The children have all loved performing it, and often children further up the school will remind me "Do you remember when we sang about the Romans?" ‘Sounds Like a Nativity’ has probably been my favourite nativity we've done. The songs are a great mix of joyful and poignant. One of the things I love about Sally's nativities is that so much thought goes in to performing them with a whole class, so there is always something worthwhile for everyone to do to feel part of it, as well as opportunity for solos for the singing stars. The nativities reflect the true meaning of Christmas in a celebratory way that is accessible to the children. Sally Kee is absolutely fabulous!"

"Amazing melodies with a clear nod to the country and era the story is set in. The lyrics were clear and satirical at times which adds a brilliant edge. Can't get enough of Mrs Kee's amazing talent."
