Class Instrument Sets
A complete teaching & learning approach; not just instruments . . .
Drums for Schools award-winning Class Instrument Sets include everything a non-specialist teacher needs to lead their class or group from basics to performance level in just a term.
These are much more than just packs of musical instruments – each set comes with world-leading teaching resources, including schemes of work, lesson plans, how-to-play videos, audio and cultural background – all designed to empower class teachers and non-specialists to deliver music-making sessions that are inclusive, collaborative and highly engaging.
The unique “learning by playing” approach to music-making is accessible to everyone, and it’s fun! Pupils and teachers love the “hands-on” approach, with everyone learning together.
Whole class music-making makes a massive impact on children’s attitude and behaviour, because it develops their social and emotional skills. Playing regularly in a group fosters listening, empathy and team-working, and has been shown to boost mental health and wellbeing.
I'm looking for ...
- From basics to first performance in just a term of lessons
- For generalists and Class Teachers as well as specialists
- World-leading teaching resources included with each set
- Tried and tested in hundreds of schools in the UK and overseas
Over the course of a term of collaborative lessons,
• Pupils will develop vital social, emotional and life skills
• Class teachers and non-specialists will up-skill into really effective music teachers
• Classes will reach performance level
Any school can use this award-winning approach to:
• Bring music teaching back in house and become musically self-sufficient
• Deliver a high quality music education to every pupil
• Get started on the path to becoming a “musical school”
All this by purchasing just a single music set and without the need for visiting music experts. And because there’s very little verbal communication needed, it’s perfect for these COVID times. Everyone can be masked up, and the instruments just need wiping down with sanitiser before and after each lesson.
In this section you’ll find links to Class Instrument Sets for a range of inclusive and accessible world music styles, including African Drumming, Brazilian Samba, Caribbean Steel Pans, Indonesian Gamelan, Japanese Taiko and World Percussion. There’s also a sub-category for Western Tuned sets.
All Drums for Schools Class Instrument Sets are fully guaranteed – please see product details for full details.

I ordered them for my granddaughter and she and I love them. She has half the pack at home (3 hours away) and I have the rest at my home. I ‘Skype regularly and each play with our set at the same time…it works brilliantly and helps me interact with her even though she is so far away. My daughters friends love them to and may also be putting in an order soon. Many Thanks.

The instruments were for two ethnic minority groups to sustain a course that we delivered to enhance their health and wellbeing by meeting together to sing. It was a huge success and they are sustaining the courses by using the instruments and singing what they learnt in the course.They have enjoyed it so much that they are sourcing extra funding to employ a tutor. Thanks!
