744 PRIMARY: DRUM CIRCLE MAGIC: Rhythm activities for Musical/Literacy/Numeracy
The course is designed for teachers who wish to bring the magic and fun of Drumming / Rhythm based activities to the classroom. Teachers will learn how to facilitate a Drum Circle with lots of fun rhythm games for Musical Exploration. A Drum Circle is an event that creates a supportive environment for creative expression with the potential for improved physical, emotional and mental conditioning. The course also explores the many ways in which drumming together as a group can help develop children`s personal, social and psychological skills. Learn how to facilitate the development of skills such as listening, interpretation, self-esteem, diversity, attention span, communications, maths and reading skills, and much more using the Drum Circle Format. No previous musical experience is needed to take this course, and the course is delivered in a very user friendly fun way. The course will improve your musical/rhythmical skills, and some time will be given to exploring the health/recreational/holistic wellness benefits of group drumming for the participants also. Many teachers have attended this course up to three times to refresh and upgrade their musical skills to relax in a fun atmosphere after a long hard year and to ensure they have a tool-kit of rhythmical games and activities on their return to work in September. Waterford Teachers’ Centre has 3 full-class sets of African Drums which are loaned out to schools for 2/3 weeks so that pupils can have a Drumming Class for that period. The course facilitator is Eddie O’Neill who is a certified Health Rhythms facilitator, and holds a Diploma in Drum Therapy. If you need more information about the course you can phone him at 0879151134. Teachers who take this course will be able to take out a loan of a class-set of African Drums for use with their pupils.
