Djembes In the Classroom

Posted

djembe girlsDjembe drumming is increasingly becoming a classroom activity that encourages team building and community. Hand-drumming has historically been used to communicate across long distances between tribes. Now it can also serve as a great tool to bridge the barriers between students in the classroom; allowing them to connect and relate in a truly inspiring way.

At Mother Rhythm Drums, we offer a wide selection of djembes, including those perfectly-suited for the classroom. Whether it be an elementary or university-level classroom, we have you covered! We also understand that it can be overwhelming selecting the right percussion ensemble out of so many choices. That’s why we’ve put together a few classroom djembe packages , which include smaller hand-held percussion items. Many teachers and/or drum circle facilitators find these smaller music-makers to be instrumental, low-cost options for supplementing their collection on a budget.

Classroom Djembe Packages On a Budget

Speaking of budget, it’s important to understand that starting out small is perfectly okay (i.e. 1-2 djembes with some maracas and shakers is a great starting-point). Many find that building their collection slowly rather then spending one lump sum all at once is more suitable. Whether you choose to do the former or the latter, we have the best quality djembes at the best classroom discounts, guaranteed. Below are a few djembe packagesfor the classroom. Teachers can save an additional 8% on the below percussion packages by applying coupon code SCHOOL8 at check-out.

Other Djembe Package Discounts

The above are just a few among many possible scenarios for your classroom. Since drums bought for the purpose of group-playing rather than resale more than likely will become slightly worn-in over time anyway, we often find that teachers or facilitators choose to save additional funds by going with slightly blemished djembes available at larger discounts. Also, if the teacher or facilitator is flexible on design wherein we can “grab and go” during shipment, still more discounts are available.

Regardless of your circumstances, we have the right combination of instruments that will fit your classroom as well as your budget. Contact us at 888.869.6293 or motherrhythm@gmail.com if you’re interested in the further discounts mentioned above, or if you’re looking for a package more customized to your needs.
