Review from one of the parents after this initial session:  

I can see that Omar was having a good time! and so great for their inner rhythms and sparking off the hemispheres. I'd love them to have this regularly! It's actually medicine. The drums are medicine! Keep up your good work! You two have a priceless gift! And such passion and love makes it even more priceless!!

Exercise: Once participants know now to listen & follow time as a group, the group can now groove in the rhythm.   

Reviews from the participants after the session:  

Dolan said he was particularly delighted to take part in the Rhythmic Engagement Programme for School by Kennedy Michael.

“Playing the drums can be therapeutic and fun. Coincidentally, I have been reading about the importance of music in children.

“All children have natural rhythm but some lose it as they get older.

“Music can be soothing and it teaches children so much.”

He says being in it for the right reason was just what all educators and kindergarten and childcare owners have to ask themselves.

“We need to put the children first and this sometimes does not happen as some run their business with an eye on the bottom line.

“Once that happens, we lose sight that we are all here to ensure we prepare the future leaders of the world.”

Dr Sean Dolan, Academic Dean at New Zealand Tertiary College

Elly Ng, teacher
I had a great time playing the drums. I did not know you could do so much and teach kids just by ‘making noise’ and I have learned so much about how play can help children learn.
