African Drumming – Primary – 10 Player Class Pack – Buddies – Video

Andy Gleadhill takes a detailed look at the African Drumming – Primary – 10 Player Class Pack – Buddies. This 10 player “Buddies” African Drumming pack is perfect for lunchtime, after school groups or for smaller class groups of KS1 and KS2 (age 5 – 11) pupils.

For full details of the pack:

The Pack includes 5 top quality djembe drums and 5 percussion instruments, to give you a wide range of authentic African Drumming sounds and to make it easy to split the group into buddy pairs, each with a big and smaller instrument. There are three sizes of djembe, all with appropriately sized playing heads, and the three sizes will enable your group to differentiate the low, medium and high parts of many African Drumming pieces.

Also included are two acclaimed teaching guides by world music expert Andy Gleadhill: African Drumming Book 1 and Percussion Buddies. The African Drumming book will take you from basics through to your first performance in just 10 lessons and there’s plenty of repertoire for a year or more of playing. The Percussion Buddies book will show you how to develop percussion accompaniments for almost any piece, whether drumming, choral, ukelele or any ensemble.
