Educational Rhythm Programs & African Drumming

Children absolutely love our African drumming & body percussion incursions! The drumming programs are fun, exciting, educational, and therapeutic! Life-skills & positive psychology are woven into each program. Our professional facilitators know how to bring out the best in children of all ages. This is an incredibly effective way to engage children!

~ Neil Druce – Deputy Principal

 "...Kids were engaged throughout the whole lesson and the engagement, participation and excitement was consistent throughout the week. I've never had to do so little behavior management in a program like this before! It was a dream.

Having Tim and Jason was also very valuable - I've never seen so much enthusiasm and passion! It was clear that they were happy to be there and the students could see that and responded to it really well.

Can't thank you enough for coming out - I'm still buzzing!"

~ Camp Quality 
"Best Activity? Drumming: Entire Camp participated in the drumming.
Feedback was that it was the BEST ever activity they have done."

How it Works... 

Our school drumming & rhythm events are all about connection, fun, musicality, mindfulness & creativity! We cater for children of all ages and abilities, creating programs that keep children completely captivated and engaged while teachers can just relax and/or play along!

We provide each child with a kids’ size drum or percussion instrument & our professional facilitator/s lead them on a rhythmical journey through a series of very powerful and stimulating educational & therapeutic games.

The drumming is intuitive, spontaneous, and highly accessible. It allows for the greatest amount of creativity and self-expression within a structured, proven framework.

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.

"Hi guys… Thanks so much for coming on Tuesday. The children absolutely loved it and have been talking about it a lot.  We have had other drumming shows but I have never really heard the feedback from the children like I did after Tim’s visit.

Everything went so smoothly and was really well organised.  I have let the girls from our other centres know that you do this kind of group thing and have passed the number around.

Thanks… have a great day!"
