Group drumming rhythms for the classroom
Are you looking for new and inspiring way's to engage students? Do you teach drum lessons for kids and struggling to find simple drum circle rhythms for all to play and enjoy?
In this video I show a variety of hand drums and stick drum rhythms that beginners can easily learn. These drum circle rhythms are great to get kid's into group drumming ensembles, they help engage and inspire connection with their peers.
I have found that starting with simple drum circle rhythms when working with new groups help build children's confidence. This is a must. It also establishes trust between student and teacher. There are some kids that pick up rhythms quickly and there are some that need some extra help and time, whether its co-ordination or self belief.
How about you, do you teach kids how to play drums or run your own music classes? What would it mean to you, to lead your own kids drumming circle? Imagine your students, even the shy ones, creating music together, working as one and having fun together, and seeing the result of a successful program. Be inspired to take the step and make a difference in your community with our teacher training programs.
Drum circle instruments for kids drumming group
One of the great benefits of drum circle music is the option to bring in lots of percussion instruments. There are a wonderful variety of percussion to add to your kids drumming class.
- Wood sounds
- Shaker sounds
- Bell sounds
- Whacky sounds
- Soundscape sounds
Bring in as much variety of percussion for kids to explore - really explore, to the point where there is no time signature - just sound, like a Soundscape (painting a picture with sound). Let their imagination to be stimulated.
More than just banging on a drum
Kids love to learn how to play drums and there are so many benefits to group drumming. Research shows that group drumming can reduce stress and anxiety, build immune system, stimulate creativity and decrease depression and uplift our mood.
