Monkey Drum is an action-packed drumming song for young children. Grab a drum and play along! It's especially fun on a gathering drum, but even an improvised drum will work.
These little monkeys are having so much fun playing on the drum . . . until a tiger comes along! The song begins with one monkey playing on the drum, and one by one more monkeys come and join in the fun. Monkey Drum helps young children develop their sense of beat, while being captivated by the drama and suspense of the song.
Perfect for use with a gathering drum or five drums grouped together. Don't have a drum? Children will have just as much fun tapping the beat on a large cardboard box or other improvised drum!
