Start your school year on the right note.
A Lead With Rhythm facilitated drum circle event is a fantastic way to break the ice and get your academic year off to a positively inspirational start, re-uniting old friends and creating the perfect opportunity to make new ones, while allowing teachers to observe the social interactions of their students.
This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce and demonstrate your school ethos while your students experience community spirit and teamwork in action. Imagine your pupils creating a common bond to build upon throughout the year.
Inclusion in education is a process of maximizing participation and removing barriers to learning for all children in their local educational setting. A commitment to appropriate inclusion involves valuing diversity, understanding difficulties and recognizing and respecting individual differences so all feel they belong. Everyone has an active supportive part to play in the success of their drum circle. Among other things, greater understanding of cooperation and teamwork is a natural result of your workshop.
Let us bring the drumming to you!
Lead With Rhythm will supply two highly trained facilitators, as well as any equipment necessary, and will work closely with your school to design an event specific to your needs. Our workshops are designed to run alongside your curriculum, and can incorporate the basics of inclusion, citizenship, listening and communication skills.
Allows for positive self expression
If you ever take a look at young people playing in a large group for the first time, what you find is that every single pupil is transformed by the experience, and each individual leaves the performance with a much deeper understanding of what cooperation and communication actually means.
Everyone gets an instrument
We have a variety of drums and percussion instruments, such as djembes, hand drums, djun-djuns, frame drums, tambourines, shakers, bells, woodblocks, triangles, and boomwhackers.
It’s more than just the drumming.
At Lead With Rhythm we pride ourselves on covering many aspects of the music curriculum, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Wrapped up within our dynamic fast paced unique program there is a myriad of related topics taking place simultaneously. As a matter of course, students are taking part in an environmentally rich arena experiencing elements of team work, fair play, cooperation, respect, proactive participation, creativity, self empowerment, stress relief, unity through diversity and much more.
