Boomwhackers & Bamboo Tamboo


When you think of percussion instruments, your mind probably jumps straight to drums and cymbals. At Beat Goes On, we’ve always challenged that impression with our range of innovative body percussion workshops. Now, we’re taking that one stage further with Boomwhackers and Bamboo Tamboo!

This engaging workshop combines two tubular percussion instruments that will allow your students to explore rhythms and cultures from around the world.

Our Boomwhackers and Bamboo Tamboo workshops are suitble for teaching at all key stagest.

During the session you will learn how to teach pupils to:

  • perform using boomwhackers (hollow, plastic tubes that make a specific pitch when hit) to explore movement and melody
  • explore the music of Trinidad & Tobago using bamboo sticks
  • learn about the cultures that developed the rhythms pupils perform
  • compose their own music using the boomwhackers and bamboo tamboo

These sessions are based on whole-class music making and group composition. Promoting well-being through energetic participation, this highly accessible workshop will open up new musical opportunities for your pupils.
