About:

Drum Therapy offers a very fun, musical incursion based on rhythm and percussion where the students make ALL of the music themselves. It is not a performance by us but a performance by the children facilitated by us.

There is growing scientific evidence for the linkage between rhythm and language, speech and reading and we have created a fun program of rhythm playing and games for the students to enjoy themselves and achieve learning and development outcomes at the same time.

Our incursions:

  • aid reading, spelling and language
  • complement and enhance the music curriculum elements of performing, composing, improvising and listening.  Students will be guided to developing a sense of individual rhythm and creativity and a practical understanding and experience of working together as a multi timbred poly rhythmic percussion orchestra
  • are inclusive of all students and easy to participate in.  No prior musical experience is necessary
  • develop active listening and co-operation by the students
  • boost self-esteem and develop a sense of group achievement

But most importantly of all, they are great fun!

Everyone has a proper sized drum and/or hand percussion and the events are led by an experienced professional facilitator supported by professional musicians.  Drum Therapy is fully insured and all staff are approved for working with children.
