Teaching drums provide African drumming workshops for schools, colleges, youth groups and businesses in the UK. The overall aims of our drumming workshops are to have fun and to experience the thrill of making music together in a group. The drum circle is a very powerful method of building confidence and self-esteem. Children and adults love banging the drums and learning rhythm and traditional African songs and chants to accompany the drumming. All our workshops are interactive, fun and educational.

“The storytelling was fantastic and they were thrilled with the drumming and dancing. It was a great experience for them all which I’m sure they will remember for a long time – and Suleman’s laughter really brightened our days!” Jill Wright, Whitefield Primary


Fair Trade workshops for schools

“Just a quick note to say thank you both for the work you did with us last Thursday. The children and staff all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it gave everyone a better chance to enjoy our Fairtrade activities from a different perspective this year. We greatly appreciate the work you both put in and the organisation and efficiency with which you ran the workshops. Thanks again for a great afternoon.” Clare Muir, St Lucy’s Primary, Cumbernauld.
