Excellent Drum for the Elementary Music Classroom!

By Deborah Goodhead

from Moore, OK

I purchased this drum for my World Drums Unit at my school where I teach instruments from around the world! It is an excellent addition to my personal collection that I can share with my students as we play the different drums using different rhythms, dynamics, and tempo! They are made very durable and I like the mahogany wood mallet. I also like the way it is made to look very "African" with the texture of the wood and colors. My students have really enjoyed getting a chance to play them as I did purchase two. I recommend this drum for anyone who works with students in the Elementary to College level even! I might purchase a couple of small size ones later....medium size is a little difficult for the lower grades (1-3) to wrap their arm around it and squeeze. You can also go to youtube.com and find free "African Talking Drum Lessons" to get you started!
