Every Student Has A Real African Drum To Play!

Drumming is communication. It is a dialogue, just like speaking. Unspoken words can be delivered through the hands on a drum. It is an effect activity to help communication and self expression. Rhythms are spoken, sung and sounded out.  Drumming is a fantastic opportunity to reap the benefits of rhythm and music. Students find African Drumming accessible and they participate with ease and curiosity. Solo skills help children gain confidence in what they are trying to express to the world. 

In Africa, communities, villages and families work together. There is a strong emphasis on communities, villages, families and friends. Working together builds social skills and problem solving techniques. Drumming is best in a group, particularly in a circle. 




Feel The Joy And Creativity Of West African Dance!

In our school workshops students will love the joy of West African dance. Fun choreography with upbeat and earthy moves.  Every dance has an ancient story or purpose. The connection between drum and dance is established with students learning about breaks and calls to each rhythm. There is no limit to how much fun we have when we are dancing!

African dance, where knees are bent, hips are rolling and arms are moving circular. The dancer leaps, skips, hops and jumps with the energy pulsating from within the drum. Don’t forget to smile!

 Enhance your curriculum or extra curricular activities with our school  and kindergarten program that align with initiatives such as The National Quality Standard Professional Learning Program and The Australian Government, National Cultural Policy, Creative Australia.

“Thank you for taking our whole college on a stimulating and enriching adventure through the 2 day drumming workshop. It was one of those challenging and fun events that revitalized us as individuals and as a community, leaving many of us hungry for more! It was amazing to later hear students heading off to Maths and English classes singing West African songs as they went! Thank you again Nat and Bec!”

Simon Cooper

College Pastor, Good Shepherd Lutheran College

“I would like to thank Nathaniel and Bec for a wonderful day of positive energy and amazing skill. They are an extraordinarily talented team and brought so much to our college in just one short day.

From the staff session in the morning – what a brilliant way to start a day – to the final Masterclass with selected Secondary students, they were engaging and fully present in all that they did.

We invited Rhythm Culture into the school to support our teen chaplaincy program as we could see how the drumming might not only appeal to our students and give them a focus for their energy, but provide them with the opportunity to be apart of something bigger than themselves. The team definitely delivered!

We are hopeful that the skills learnt on the day will continue to develop and grow with the support of our chaplain in lunchtime drumming sessions and that in the future we might get Rhythm Culture back to help us with the creation of drums and a regular drumming mentorship.”

Once again, a huge thank you!
