Fun and educational African percussion classes for boys and girls aged 6 to 10 yrs.
At Drum Club, children are introduced to various instruments, including djembes, dununs, guiros, shakers & bells. They learn about the djembe, where it comes from, how it’s made and when and why it’s traditionally played. They learn how to produce the 3 sounds of the djembe and how these sounds combine to make cool rhythms.
Drumming is an excellent way to children to learn self awareness, listening skills, coordination, cooperation and patience. All this while having a great time making music and learning about another culture!
Apart from being heaps of fun, drumming has a positive effect on:
- Ability to focus inwards as well as outwards
