Our workshops explore the fundamental elements of rhythm, sound, and performing as a group. We offer the children a chance to perform on instruments from around the world, including Djembes, Bongos, Gueros and Tambourines among others. 

We also offer team-building sessions for Teachers/Adults: Even teachers need a little fun! The goal of our teacher’s workshop is twofold: To create synergy in the workplace through dynamic drumming ensembles…and at the same to educate teachers about techniques for integrating simple rhythm and sound games into their lesson plans.

Mystic Drumz performed their first show in the family fun series called “The Legend of Marshmallow Island” at my school, Humbervale Montessori, this past January to compliment our classroom theme about Musical instruments and the Orchestra. Mystic Drumz lead the children on an unforgettable adventure into rhythm and movement, while capturing their imaginations and attention through artful storytelling and creative descriptions of instrument origins. Strong multi-cultural messages came through the songs and stories that were shared with the children. The program will exceed your expectations, I’ve been teaching for many years and this show is one of the few that totally captivated the entire group and connected with the children at so many levels.”

Andrea Heitz

“Mystic Drumz provides a program that is diverse and entertaining. There is nothing like laughter and we laughed from beginning to end. Following the performance, the entire staff commented on the excellence of the performance. I enjoyed it so much that I enlisted Mystic Drumz for a personal event. Adults and children alike at this event were completely taken with both the Mystic Drumz music and stories. The program is interesting, educational, humorous and exciting! It would be my pleasure and that of my colleagues to work with Mystic Drumz again.”

“The performance and the workshops were fantastic. The students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the story, instruments and music. Though the audience ranged from kindergarten to grade three the presentation and content was age/grade appropriate and held everyone’s attention and enthusiasm. We look forward to when we can have you come back with the “Button People. Thanks so much.”

Fran McLeod
Teacher
