WhambaJam is instrumental in your child’s development


You don’t analyse an instrument or philosophise a band, you play a song and play with a band - but this kind of playing is as complex a process as quantum physics.

Here’s why:

Research shows that children who are actively involved in music (either by playing an instrument, singing or dancing regularly):

• Do better in reading and math when they start school
• Are better able to focus and control their bodies
• Play better with others and have higher self-esteem
• Combining music and movement helps preschoolers learn to control their bodies
• Children will also learn hand movements and simple dance moves that go along with rhymes and songs
• Learning physical control is an important developmental step and can help build concentration skills and self-control later on in life.

Below are some examples of the Instruments we use in class. in each session, we will use about 5 or 6 different percussion instruments and each child gets to play on their own instrument.

These are just a few examples - we also have a wide range of African Percussion instruments that we introduce during the classes.
