Camp Quality

School is fun!

Our school drumming events are all about fun! We cater for children of all ages and abilities. We create events that keep children completely captivated and engaged while teachers can look on with big smiles on their faces. Beware, as we may even include the teachers!

We provide each child with a kids’ size drum or percussion instrument. Our professional facilitator/s then lead them on a rhythmical journey by creating a series of very powerful and stimulating educational games.

The facilitation techniques we use are based on intuitive universal language gestures and symbols that work in any group. Our rhythm sessions are fun, exciting, and therapeutic with life-skill lessons woven into the process. The drumming is intuitive, spontaneous, and highly personalised. It allows for the greatest amount of creativity and self-expression within a structured and disciplined process.

Choose an option that suits and enjoy our hassle-free events!

Event Options Include:

6-10 week Drumming Course

Children are led through a series of fun and captivating games that focus on engaging, educating, and bringing out the best in each child. They will learn to play as a group which helps to enhance their social skills. Throughout the course they will work on a performance piece. At the end of the drumming course there is the option to perform (for family and/or the rest of the school), which is a great way to create a sense of accomplishment and focus.

We provide each child with a drum and/or a percussion instrument for the course. You have the option to purchase the drums and percussion at a special discounted price.
