Drumming for Schools

“The pupils gained so much from the project in terms of musical development but also spiritual, cultural and social education. Watching the performance was an experience which demonstrated clearly what real education is all about: enjoyment and achievement for all. It was simply outstanding.”   Andy Taylor, Head, Cliffe Hill

In my experience, drumming, dancing and singing are the most accessible musical forms and very often the most enjoyable. My intention is to create an environment in which music is easy and fun to make and from which there is an immediate and lasting educational and cultural value for all pupils.

It’s not really WORK, it’s PLAY and a wise man once said, “You may learn more of a man in an hour of play than in a whole year of speech”
