"Both our kids  had guitar lessons with Jim Tucker, he was a really good teacher for them. Our son pretty much sat at home and went through the whole course one page after another till he finished it. And she can’t stop singing that song now, it’s been about a week."

In conversation about the MoZo Island natives, “Oh yes, look at those. The characters look great. I’m sure the children will enjoy this very much.”

"Jim Tucker has been a great teacher for my daughter, she has really loved her lessons with him."

Dr Colin Riley: Composer, Head of Music Faculty -  Brunel University, London

"Mozo Island has a brilliant blend of ebooks, videos and audio which will delight kids with off-beat characters and stimulating games alongside a solid structure of learning. The course also blends the physical learning of an instrument with musical concepts and theory within a hugely open and embracive environment."
