Inspire Music African Drum Workshop

Suitable for Primary, Secondary and Special Educational Needs schools, our African Drumming workshops provide a holistic experience that will enable all of your children to be involved regardless of age or ability.

In the workshop children will learn how the drum was used traditionally and also how it relates to the modern rhythms heard today. Using a variety of drums and hand held African instruments they will create a large ensemble, making it an ideal group activity.

Throughout the sessions, children will learn through the use of call and response to understand how the drum works.

An African Drumming Workshop can be incredibly rewarding and inspirational for all involved.

  • Improves teamwork and communication skills
  • Builds confidence
  • Increase cultural awareness and cohesion
  • Creates appreciation for diversity
  • Therapeutic (Stress buster)

These workshops are high-energy, ensuring children are engaged throughout the sessions and at the end of the day all participants come together for an amazing performance.


Cost for one academic day is £500.

Why not spread the cost between your family of schools and host an event for other schools to also take part in.
