Musical gifts for birthdays, Christmas and every occasion
We don’t just supply quality musical instruments for schools and preschool; we also provide the perfect musical gifts for family and friends!
And what could be more wonderful to give, and to receive, than a musical instrument? Especially one that’s natural, sustainable, and built to deliver enjoyment (and educational benefits) on day one, and to keep on delivering year after year.
Here you’ll find a selection of musical gift ideas ranging from mini djembes through unusual hand percussion to carry bags and full sized drums. There’s something for everyone – from three years upwards, and there are also some great music sets for use in the home. And almost everything is accessible and SEN friendly. If you don’t find quite what you’re looking for below, then do try the “search” in the top bar.
And we provide a FREE gift wrapping service – just put a note on your order to request gift wrapping and add any short note you’d like us to write on the tag.

Everything was fab!
Very happy with the order, and have since ordered more Djembe drums as they were perfect for our early years classes.
The mini drums are excellent and I love the sound of the natural agogo. More mini drums of different materials please – they are perfect for all ages and I can get a lot in one box, so they are easier for me to carry around!!

We are delighted with the order and making arrangements to ship to Zambia this week. Thanks again the quality is great and I can only imagine the excitement when the children get instruments in the three schools we support in Zambia.
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.

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’.
They are wonderful! From mini chimes to shaman drum, Thank you.
My work as a therapist is incomplete without them!

You are more than welcome to the praise as the instruments are all of high quality and safe for even the smallest of hands at the setting. We also do daily exercising with the children to music so the scope is now endless.

My order was received safely and was much appreciated, as they were to be part of a singsong evening of Australian music with patients and staff! We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening!
Really pleased with the drums…they’re great.
It was all excellent, though I mistakenly bought sticks for the tongue drum locally as I didn’t know it would come with sticks.
The new drum arrived today and I am delighted with it.
I am very happy with the instruments.
When budget allows, I will look to add to my collection!
