Our African Drumming Program introduces every child to music, rhythm and songs from Western Africa. Extremely popular throughout Black History Month, every child plays their own djembe which culminates in a whole school performance.

A drum circle forms the basis of the program and emphasises the importance of teamwork. Every child has the opportunity to immerse themselves in a different culture whilst they experience a feeling of unity as part of the drum circle.

Focusing on the culture, heritage and history of Western Africa, your children will be playing traditional polyrhythms to accompany popular songs from the region.

We offer a fully interactive service with each child playing their own instrument. Our hands on activities are suitable for all age groups and can accommodate up to 250 children per day. The day finishes with a whole school assembly and a performance by your own students.

All of our programs incorporate many aspects of the Common Core State Standards. Union Jack School Shows meets all necessary district vendor requirements and all program facilitators have JLA clearance and appropriate identification.

Shannon Melville, Music teacher, Neptune Elementary School, Osceola, Florida:

‘It is a wonderful program. Very engaging and extremely well done. I would recommend this program to any other school. I hope we can have them back next year as part of our ongoing work here at Neptune.’

Daniel Lunn, Principal, Cleveland Elementary, Polk, Florida:

Hands on, active involvement for the entire workshop. Students were fully engaged from the moment they entered the room. The student’s interest was gained immediately and background information was provided about the instruments they would use during the workshop. A wonderful culminating activity for our Cultural Arts Day.’
