Kidz Jam

Children’s innate love of music shines through in our Kidz Jam sessions, where even the shyest children slowly move forward to join in.  Teachers and parents also enjoy these jams where children share, listen, take turns, lead, follow and respond – all the things you’ve been trying to get them to do!

“Thank you so much for coming to DC to work with our Year 5 and 6 students. Your motto of, 'We UPLIFT, INSPIRE, CELEBRATE & UNITE people' was certainly true during our sessions.  Our students enjoyed the drums, the singing and the dancing. I loved seeing their faces , smiles, wide eyes and eagerness to participate, especially the students who do not usually join in so readily. They spoke about it all day, hoping they would get another chance to meet and 'play' with you again." -- Terry Evans, teacher at Discovery College

“I was feeling a bit intimidated at first but my confidence grew as the workshop continued. Once I got moving I had great fun with both banging the drums loud and dancing energetically. It made me open up!”, said a Year-9 student.   Read more...

"... Masunaga recently held a drum jam at the Sarah Roe School, where all of the students have severe or profound disabilities, including physical and intellectual difficulties. 

 

The students, many of whom cannot communicate verbally and have difficulty using other kinds of instruments, really enjoyed the experience, comments teacher Laura Ferretti."   Read more...

Utilise RHYTHM in your classroom!

Combining two ideas together creates something new. 
Here is what we did.

"Rhythm and rhyme help unlock memories and words set to music are remembered easier than other methods." The Head of Psychology and Theory of Knowledge teacher at King George V School, Ray Heath knew that music can bring psychological, emotional, social and academic benefits to her students who were studying content-heavy curriculum based on standardised testing.

She then applied that knowledge by inviting me and creating a programme called PsychJam. Together, we worked with 60 students over two long sessions and the result was positive. Over 80% of Year-11 got grade 8+ and 63% of Year-10 got 8+ in tests.

"The sessions provided an environment that nurtured engagement and feelings of success", said Ray. The students were so happy having much needed fun and reconnecting with their classmates after a long period of online learning.
