"We are very happy with the drums. They are perfect for Key Stage 2 children, who are all enjoying playing them. They are easy to store and carry around and make a surprisingly good range of sounds for their size. I am looking forward to developing my own skills and teaching schemes. The communication and advice about which drums to buy etc was excellent and very useful."

"¯The drums are fantastic! High quality and a great price!

I have used them nearly every day with all year groups and some pupils are in the music room every break and lunch to play on them! The djembes have been particulary useful in teaching African music to whole classes."
By: Teacher, St Ambrose Barlow School
"The thing I really like about your instruments is that they're real instruments, with the fabulous sound and feel that you can only get from wood, metal and skin, as opposed to the multitude of plastic things designed for toddlers that just look like toys. I think it really helps them to value instruments as something special and exciting."
By: Teacher, West Minster Primary

"Taiko is more than music. It is classroom management, respect, communication, listening, collaboration, celebration, self-discipline, personal growth and, mostly, fun!  It covers all of the music curriculum and challenges children in ways that no other subject can offer in such a holistic way.  Children will also gain a sense of team and belonging that cannot be expressed with words.  In short, taiko is a vehicle for teaching everything that is important in life."   

By: Primary Teacher, Devon

I used the Jumbie Jam steel pans with Y4 children very successfully last term. They are a great and very immediate way into music ensemble playing that can lead to all sorts of learning in musical skills and understandings. The children loved it! The cases you offer are also brilliant for storage and make the lesson quick and easy to install and pack down.

By: Primary Teacher

The children love it! They are finding the tools comfortable and are curious. . . It is a great success!!!!
