Students love to play rhythms and drumming is a very fun way to learn how rhythm works. Playing buckets for drums is fun, but does not give students the same level of excitement as playing a real drum. Tunable Tubano drums are a great investment because they are specifically designed with the classroom in mind. Students can play with confidence knowing the drum has a great sound and it is made to last for many years. Students will use these drums for playing in drum circles, practicing new rhythms and creating their own music. Performing on a real drum gives students a sense of true musicianship and provides a quality sound to share with an audience. When we participate in drumming circles, the students learn listening skills, team work, the value of each person in the circle and musicianship. Playing on real instruments enhances that experience for the students. Drumming together also helps students forget about their troubles for a while. It is hard to focus on anything but the moment when concentrating to keep a pattern going while rhythms are being played by other drums.
