Inspire - Educate - Entertain
Our fully-interactive percussion shows embrace the fun and simple methods of learning music and rhythm. The shows are geared to inspire, motivate and encourage creativity within students and teachers. Each student is given an African-styled hand drum to perform along with our team. We offer three shows geared towards the different age groups of your students (junior, middle and senior). The senior show is performed without a single word spoken as part of the theme: "Actions speak louder than words".
