Hi
I have been working with very young children and their caregivers/parents for many years though not with drumming. That is the direction I am headed. My best advice is that relationships with children are just that - relationships - there is a give and take - like a dance - we call it RESPONSIVE relationships. It is quite like the call and response in any drumming though my intention is to allow the child to take the lead and have the caregiving adult follow them! It is a way to be responsive to the child and read his/her cues - and that is helpful in any relationship building with them. I am going to do drumming at a Fatherhood event in Southern DE the end of February - I have just made ten 'baby' drums for this purpose (sono tubes and pack cloth) My intention is to have the dyad sitting on the floor on a quilt and guiding the parent to allow the child to explore and then follow the lead. I am making beaters to go with the drums - then they can use them or their hands. I will share how it went after I am done. There is also an article on the remo website about drumming with babies by a Japanese woman!! Check it out!!
