Djembe Drums

Can you hear the drums?

The children at the Pré de Challes campus had a trial day with our wonderful Djembe teacher!

They had the opportunity to play the big drums using their hands in different ways to make different sounds. They joined in playing some music together following a steady rhythm, listened to an African song and strummed the Kora.

This sort of activity is excellent for developing children’s sense of rhythm, coordination and gross motor skills. They have to use many of their large muscles to sit up and move their arms effectively. Thank you Soungalo!
