Product Information

What's included

Please note that for reasons of stock availability we may need to make the occasional substitution of the more minor pack components. If so, we’ll always ensure suitability/equivalence and we’ll always clear any significant changes with you in advance.

How to Play

This kit is lots of shakers which we’ve put together because shakers are one of the easiest instruments to make a sound with – you just hold and shake. These are all different types – shakers with the sound made inside, shakers with the sounds made outside, shakers with metal, shakers with wood, a squeezer shaker and then the shakers are interesting shapes and sizes from small to large, from egg-shaped to animal-shaped and a medium-sized drum is included for you to lead the group if you need or want to, or for a child to play. it’s an ideal kit for very young children because there are no beaters and the shakers are easy to hold. There are pairs are instruments so that people can swap round and get to play everything, but also so that pairs of children will feel encouraged to play with each other.


We work with a small number of specialist logistic companies to deliver your order quickly and economically. The delivery method varies, depending on your location and the size of the order, as follows:

UK Locations

Orders up to 5kg – Courier 2 to 3 working day delivery. This would typically include books, smaller instruments, percussion baskets and djembes up to 40cm.

Large orders – Pallet service, 3 to 5 working day delivery. Used for large orders and those with more fragile contents.

Please note:

  1. Above timings are from dispatch date. Time from placing your order will usually be one or two days longer, depending on the order and destination.
  2. Delivery to offshore or Highland addresses may take longer and may cost more than to UK mainland addresses and we’ll quote and agree the costs with you in advance. Please note that in these cases it’s fine to go ahead and place your order, and there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you.
  3. For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.

International Locations

Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction. Speed is of the essence here as most courier companies will only accept responsibility for damage in transit if the damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery.

 In the event of damage, please take photographs, including any damage to the packaging, and email these to us ASAP.

Similarly, if an instrument  develops a fault within 12 months of purchase in the course of normal use (though excluding fair wear and tear), please let us know, and we’ll replace it or refund the cost. It’s also very helpful for us to see photos of the issue as this gives us solid information for changing the design, the production method or the packing materials.

But please do contact us before returning any damaged or substandard items. Once we’ve approved their return, please send to:  Drums for Schools Limited, 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Burton Joyce NG14 5GL 

We really appreciate your feedback in the case of faults (or if you think an instrument could be improved in any way) and we take all such feedback very seriously indeed.

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.

The kit arrived safely and we had great fun opening the parcel with the children. They loved looking at all the instruments and trying out the different sounds. After Easter we will be using the instruments regularly and look forward to trying some of the ideas in the accompanying booklet.
