Product Information

The approach

The Drums for Schools collaborative learning approach is modelled on traditional approaches to teaching and learning world music styles, adapted to the realities of the western classroom by expert Andy Gleadhill.

In traditional cultures learning is based on following the leader and by repeated “doing”. There is generally no written notation but the music tends to be easy to remember and basic instrumental techniques are simple, and so there are no major barriers to learning. Learning takes place in groups, usually of mixed ability. The playing also has an important social function – for accompanying ceremonies or events – and it’s very much a cooperative effort.

Translated to the classroom this results in a teaching and learning approach which is:

Collaborative – the class or group is engaged in an activity in which everyone – teacher and pupils – work together and help one another to achieve a common goal: the performance of a piece of music.

Inclusive – the musical styles are “foreign” and there’s no notation – so they present a level playing field where less academically able pupils are not disadvantaged. And there are easy and more difficult parts in every piece and so players of every ability can be involved and stay engaged throughout – no-one gets left out.

Accessible – the instruments are all easy to play and most pupils will be able to make a good sound after just one lesson, and the whole class will be making an impressive sound together after just a couple of lessons. It’s possible to include all sorts of “disabilities” and we’re always ready to advise on particular cases – contact us.

And the net result of accessibility, inclusivity and collaboration is something quite spectacular – extraordinarily fast progress. Nothing succeeds like success and after just a few lessons most classes will develop a genuine “esprit de corps” and you really will be seeing and hearing performance-level playing within a terms worth of lessons.

But the benefits are not just musical – the collaborative approach and the intensive listening and cooperation involved also develop pupils (and teachers!) life skills and so you’ll see a wide range of improved social and personal skills and a general improvement in “team spirit” and togetherness.
