Our classes are therefore live and interactive. Once the children have a large enough repertoire to play along to, our teachers introduce both tuned, and non-tuned, musical instruments in a carefully guided fashion. These can include drums, shakers, bells, triangles, maracas and slide whistles, as well as a great range of other percussion instruments. For example, this term the older students have been using kazoos.
