Our students (age 3-6) study a different geographic region or culture every month. We hired Robert to make a musical presentation on South America. He was fabulous! The content was perfectly relevent to our studies and he kept the student’s fully engaged, which is no easy feat. We would absolutely recommend him for any kids educational event.

Do you work with a group of kids that you’d like to turn on to rhythm? Sometimes the best way is to simply get drums in their hands, provide simple guidance, and let them play! If you prefer more structure, Total Rhythm offers facilitated drum jam sessions with specific rhythms and parts.

All of our drum sessions teach the following:

  • Group cohesion & Harmony
  • The power of Listening
  • Team-building and Synergy
  • Individual and Group Achievement

Fees: Vary according to program length and content, location and size of presentation.
