Instruments for Older Kid Class (5 and up)

The older kid class (4.5ish and up) learns drum beats and melodies on the keyboard.


You will need 4 not too big drumsticks (7a adult sticks can work also, but anything bigger might break the cymbals we use):

Any drum will do, as long as it's not too loud. I have some good used drums to for $20, let me know if I should bring.

This one is solid:

If you really want to go for it, this is the drum set I recommend (You could bring the just the snare drum to class, or the whole drum set if you like!):

For Keyboards, melodicas are great fun, extremely portable and rather affordable. This one has 2 mouthpiece kits:
