Our African Drumming Experience is fun, practical and above all educational. Available for full or half day sessions, we provide hands-on tuition, demonstrating traditional rhythms and techniques and engaging children in creating their very own drumming pieces.

Children love playing our beautiful instruments: Djembes, Dun Dun bass drums and an array of hand-held percussion.

They enjoy the benefits of feeling successful quickly, whilst learning the fundamentals of making music together.

Our fully interactive sessions are tailored to each age group, and include:

  • Playing techniques & rhythm games
  • Traditional African rhythms
  • Being the conductor!
  • Creating a whole piece of music
  • Key communication skills
  • Responsibility & equal positive contribution

Single workshops and residencies available.  Regular drumming sessions have been shown to give children a real educational advantage, providing fantastic stimulus for their brain development and their readiness for learning.
