The Jumbie Jam is a fantastic instrument for music education. It is an easy and effective way to get students started immediately. Schools across the globe are now utilizing the Jumbie Jam as a primary instrument in their music classes and programs.
Students are not overwhelmed or intimidated by the Jumbie Jam, ensuring an effective and immediate learning experience. The Jumbie Jam is smaller than a full-sized Steel Drum, with only 8 notes (which are labeled) as opposed to the complex and expensive 32- note full-sized drum. The Steel Drum is a multi-faceted instrument providing both percussive and melodic musical capabilities creating a well rounded musical experience. Originating in the country of Trinidad & Tobago it is a culturally rich instrument providing the opportunity for cross curricular studies.
Music directors are thrilled to implement a new, exciting and cultural instrument. Further enhancing the product, we have developed classroom curriculum providing guidance on implementing and expanding the instruments scope along with special labels and song books for individuals with Special Needs.
