Experience the
Transformative Power
of Rhythm.


These workshops are available in English, French or Spanish

We are available for drumming workshops and shows throughout Canada, the USA and the world!

Every child can sing. Every child can dance. Every child deserves the opportunity to experience rhythm and make music. As children experience the joys of music, they also develop their basic capacities for self-confidence and self-expression.

Movement is vital to a young child’s development. Movement is fun! Participants will enhance their own rhythmic and vocal skills while learning a repertoire of songs, rhythms, games, movements, stories, and imaginative play activities. Our approach is designed to experience others’ cultures through dance, drumming, and stories.

With the use of body movement, children explore the elements of dance and rhythm: body/shape, space, force/energy, rhythm/pattern, and stories. The goal for each workshop is to nurture creativity by listening to children’s ideas; allowing them an opportunity to make choices, and by providing a rich musical environment in which they may explore and learn. This workshop lasts for 45 minutes.

    Drumming enhances the ability to focus the mind, stimulate cognitive development, and release stress. It also activates multiple brain systems.
    Drumming increases self-esteem and results in a sense of empowerment and enhanced ability to focus.
    Drumming allows people to recognize new possibilities and discover their own natural talent that is inherent in everybody.


    Playing musical instruments can improve fine motor coordination, help to focus and give self-discipline, and this will help children with behavioral problems.
    Playing music helps children develop self-esteem, as they feel a sense of accomplishment in producing a rhythm or melody.
    Music motivates children to participate in a group activity and usually produces a positive emotional response.
    Music engages a variety of learning styles, integrates multiple human intelligences and creates a communal experience.


    Music and rhythm accesses your brain through your emotion.
    It allows children to make connections between language, cognition, expression and culture. The rhythm helps to increase motivation, interest, and enjoyment.
    Rhythm improves an individual’s range of motion, joint mobility / agility / strength, balance, co-ordination, respiration patterns, and muscular relaxation.
    Rhythm helps to develop brain waves. The body has a natural rhythm and when the children hear the external rhythm it makes them feel in harmony and synchronized. It makes them feel balanced. Thinking is clearer and they are not distracted.


    All of the movement activities will help children develop critical thinking, creativity, memory, learning skills, self-knowledge, and self-control.
    It increases their ability to cooperate with others.
    Through movement activities, children will also experience space and body awareness and will develop mutual caring/sharing and respect in a creative environment.
    These activities enhance the children’s listening skills, refine their awareness and allow them to experience the joy of self-expression.


    Telling stories with the participation of children through the story helps their attention, promotes self-expression, and develops their imagination and ways to connect sound, language, and movement.
    By singing together, children will develop how to work with others and develop cognitive abilities because they have to remember words and melodies.
    Children will enhance their vocal skills while learning a repertoire of songs with rhythms


    The rhythm of the drum helps to activate the natural rhythm of the body. The beat of the drum simulates our natural heartbeat. Connecting the two will bring harmony into our life and body, the foundation of healing.
