The drum was very well received by my grandson for his 8th birthday. The fact that I’d got him the bag as well helped him understand that a musical instrument needs to be looked after and treasured as well as enthusiastically used!
The ordering process worked very well. You gave me advice on the chat as well as email so I felt confident that it was the right drum for his age. You kindly told me to wait until you’d added the bag to the website the next day and checked I’d noted when the warehouse would be closed in August. All very efficient and the order duly arrived, suitably packaged. I’d ordered in plenty of time for his birthday this month.
Mary Nixon

I am very happy with the results

Nick Hobley
The djembe has been a great success, building on a moment of interest. I do worry about uptake of instrumental tuition as fewer opportunities for live demonstrations in schools to spark an interest and perhaps fewer adults around with skills and readiness to notice and build on an interest to learn to play.
As children return to schools music and the arts are even more vital for their well-being. I think it was the wonderful Evelyn Glennie who said that music isn’t a luxury it’s a necessity.
Mary Nixon

The goods arrived safely and it is great to have instruments made with natural materials and with the authentic look and feel.

It’s a firm favourite activity with our SEN groups, using a combination of djembe drums and other percussion instruments. The natural ones are definitely best and a drumming session is always an engaging and fun one.

Jade Herriott

We’ve recently discovered ‘Drums for Schools’ – and we are instantly impressed
by their customer service, product knowledge and the range and quality of their instruments. This is a real breakthrough for schools looking to explore multi-cultural music-making for small and large groups in an affordable way. We highly recommend ‘Drums for Schools’.

Brendon Renwick
Music for Schools Ltd

Very happy with the order, and have since ordered more Djembe drums as they were perfect for our early years classes.
