Why Primal drum (tongue handpan) is valuable for your children (and for you too)?
1. IT ATTRACTS CHILDREN’S ATTENTION EASILY
Sound and appearance of tongue drums and handpans in general, easily attract children’s attention.
2. DEVELOPING OF CREATIVITY AND SELF-CONFIDENCE
With tongue drums and handpans there are no mistakes while playing. There is only an open space for musical research, creativity and development. It works great on child’s self-confidence and development of his taste and love for musical creativity, and music in general.
3. IT DOESN’T BOTHER THE HOUSEMATES
Yes, this is important! No matter how it is played, it will not sound uncomfortable to your ears. This allows you to do your chores while the children are entertained with musical instrument.
4. CHILD’S INDEPENDENCE
Tongue drums are played freely, without specific rules and techniques. That gives children a feeling of freedom, and ability to explore sounds, rhythms and melodies on their own.
5. DEVELOPING DEDICATION AND PATIENCE
Since there are no mistakes in playing Primal drum, your children will feel comfortable and therefore will not easily give up on it as they might with other musical instruments. This way they will get a chance to learn some important life lessons like dedication, patience and determination.
6. ENCOURAGEMENT AND PRAISE
Children can show you every progress and success in playing, and get praise and encouragement from you.
7. MUSICALITY AND RHYTHMICITY
Children will explore sounds, melodies and rhythms, develop musicality, rhythmicity and self-confidence.
8. INTUITIVE PLAYING
Primal drum, just as almost every other tongue drum or handpan, is a intuitive type of musical instrument, which means we will both learn how to play it and play it in an intuitive way. Since intuition is most developed in childhood, children will easily learn how to play it. Read more in our article about intuitive playing and free improvisation HERE.
9. PROUD AND HAPPY CHILD
Children will be proud of their sound creations and enjoy them, along with you and the whole family.
10. FOCUS AND CALMING
Playing Primal drum sounds relaxing but still it requires a certain level of focus while playing it, therefore making it a great tool for calming the child.
11. ENJOYING MUSIC
Children will spontaneously learn to enjoy music and indulge it.
12. FAMILY FUN
You can plan Primal drum together with your children and teach each other some new songs and rhythms. It will be a great fun for the whole family!
Children can play it together and in a same time, which makes this musical instrument unique and excellent for children’s gatherings, birthday parties or simply if you have more than one child in the family.
14. STRENGTHENING MEMORY
Memorizing rhythms, melodies and songs can help in improving child’s memory.
15. RESISTANT MUSICAL INSTRUMENT
Primal drum is made of steel (that’s why we also call this type of instrument – steel drum), coated with layers of anti-corrosion paint. Therefore, you do not need to worry that the children will easily break it as it is the case with most of other music instruments (guitar, ukulele, synthesizer, piano, violin etc.). It is even more resistant to shocks than the classic handpan instruments. If you’d like to know more details about handpan – RAV Vast – Primal drum differences and similarities, read our review HERE.

With this musical instrument, you will never have to explain your children that they do NOT know how to play it, or that it is intended ONLY for children who go to music school (like it is the case with guitar, piano and other instruments).
