Drumming Workshops For Schools & Colleges

Exploring musical abilities, enhancing interpersonal skills

Book a drumming workshop

Children and young people are often natural musicians without even knowing it, and our Drumroots school workshops are designed to help pupils explore their individual musical abilities, as well as show them the value of working together as a team. Our workshops also focus on motor skills and coordination – so as well as drumming, we often incorporate dance into our programmes. Our workshops often end with a performance in front of the whole school so that everyone – children, teachers and parents – can share in what our workshop has taught its young participants.

Community Workshop

We work with Infant, Primary and High School pupils, and our workshops can support key areas of the curriculum, as well themed school events such as Arts Weeks and the celebration of world cultures. The individual content and style of workshops reflects the age and ability of the pupils, and we always provide at least two enhanced CRB-checked and insured facilitators, one of whom is HSE certified first aider. We have particular experience of supporting pupils with special educational needs, including Aspergers and Autism. We also work with expelled, excluded and socially disadvantaged youngsters. in addition, we deliver training for teachers, and we are available for after school drum clubs.

The schools we’ve worked with - and how they’ve enjoyed Drumroots!

We have worked for a wide range of schools, including Chetham's School of Music, Manchester Grammar School, Royal Northern College of Music, Oliver Quibell Infant School, Sunshine Children's Centre and many others. Here are just some of the many positive comments we’ve received from teachers:

Center Parks

"Feedback was completely positive. Drumroots' impact on our learning day was very significant and felt through all the year groups. Your staff were very professional, courteous and engaged pupils to an extent that it became a day for them to remember for a long time."
Egerton Park Arts College


Mobberley Primary School

"Drumroots visited MOPS After School Club…it was FANTASTIC. The children loved it, the staff loved it. You were drawn into the beat, and the atmosphere of the session. All the children from the four year olds to the eleven year olds were captivated, which is very difficult after a day at school and the mixed ages of the audience. We would most certainly welcome Drumroots back to our club and hope that we are able to in the future."
Mobberley C of E Primary School After School Club

"Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic! Thank you so much."
Mills Hill Primary School
