Children and Youth

Children and young people benefit in intangible ways when it comes to Drumjams. From developing motor skills in toddlers and better hand-eye co-ordination in young children to improving memory, concentration & alertness in children and teenagers alike to improving confidence & self-esteem in young adults, the list of benefits of Drumjams in children and young people is quite long.

Drumming releases stress, breaks down barriers, improves communication and encourages creativity. Participants discover their own musical potential and gain confidence. Group drumming gives young people an enjoyable lesson in teamwork. They learn about rhythm and discover the advantages of listening. Most of all, drumming is fun and children enjoy the experience enormously.
