This show has been developed over the last five years with incredible results. Within seconds the Rhythm Interactive team will have your students singing and playing music together. The show uses a mixture of non-verbal and verbal communication with the underlying theme, ‘if you can say it you can play it’ and ‘together we can make a change’.
The middle and senior school drum show is a great way to inspire and motivate both students and teachers.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
