In school we have the opportunity to provide singing practice, we also have a selection of percussion some children have the opportunity to have private music which they pay for themselves.
If the school has the opportunity to have a full set of boomwhackers every child in the school has a chance to learn a tuned instrument rather than just percussion.
The magic of boomwhackers is that they create music but to create this glorious music all you have to do is hit one of the tubes onto any surface. For children who are upset, and cross, angry about certain situations they have the opportunity to hit the tubes hard get their anger out but then create positive music. The child calms quickly in these situations.
