Rhythm Songs and Drum Songs

Songs and games with body percussion, boomwhackers and drums

People like to sing. And all over the world, people like to combine songs with dance and rhythmic accompaniment. We will also have a lot of fun with the combination of singing and movement - and discover a variety of play and learning opportunities! We will sing simple, beautiful songs - familiar and unfamiliar, from all over the world and those we have made up ourselves - and play uncomplicated accompanying rhythms. For some songs we will only use body percussion, for others the boomwhackers will help us to find the right notes.

For the "drum songs" we need different drums: Congas, djembes, cajons, bass drums. And the "small percussion" will also be used: Claves, shakers, caxixis. Bring what you can find!
