"Steve Rivers from Unbeatable Energy recently organised and ran a staff INSET day for us using African drums to develop musical activities with children. This was as a result of Steve coming in and working with our children during a music and dance week which we had organised the term before. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and very quickly picked up the necessary techniques needed to use the drums effectively.During the INSET day all the staff (teachers and support staff) learned how to use the drums and introduce the children to different beats and rhythms. We now have drumming going on throughout the school from reception to Y6. Using the drums is a very good way of quickly introducing the children to lots of different aspects of making and performing music and both the children and the staff love it! I can highly recommend Steve and the African drums as a very effective way of introducing both adults and children to the joys of music making."
