NEW INSTRUMENT ALERT

NEW INSTRUMENT ALERT

Last Updated: 23 Sep, 2019

Our Boomwhacker course is about learning a new instrument in a fun, creative and inventive way. Boomwhackers are coloured tubes that when struck produce a note. Boomwhackers are a relatively new instrument that allows the children to play in group ensembles, recreating songs or composing their own melodies. Children will get the opportunity to play in different parts of the Boomwhackers’ orchestra to see where they prefer to be. Every song is taught using colour coordinated notes allowing children who struggle to read from a stave to still participate easily. The course is very hands-on with all participants having the opportunity to play the Boomwhackers, both as part of the group and in a solo capacity.

At first some staff in the office were a little sceptical about having Boomwhackers as part of our PPA cover curriculum. However, once they arrived and we all had a chance to play them, everyone was on board. We tested the Boomwhackers at a school in London for the final term of last year. I went to visit the school a few weeks ago and the question I got asked the most was ‘When are we getting the Boomwhackers back’. This was not only asked by the children at the school, but by the school staff and our staff. It’s clear they were loved within this school as the children couldn’t wait to tell me what they’d done with them last year.
