Drumming allows children to communicate their excitement, happiness and feelings even before they can talk. Rhythms develop their ears for languages and intonation within speech, and percussion fun can provide an excellent foundation for learning musical instruments in the future. Working on the drum builds strength and flexibility while developing a range of muscles all through the hands, arms and upper body too!
In Kspace Drumming, musical aspects such as tempo, beat and rhythm, and concepts of volume, dynamics and notation arise organically and as part of each planned lesson. Drum circles offer a chance to build communication skills, cooperation and confidence. The children enjoy using our wide collection of instruments (Djembe, Maracas, Rainstick, Xylophone, Gong) and building their own. Hands-on practice includes playing, movement, improvisation, listening and even arts and crafts. Everyday games like ‘Hide and Seek’ and ‘Simon Says’ become musical adventures. Story-telling takes on a new dimension with children’s enthusiastic sound effects on their instruments.
