Elementary Student Pedal Desk adapted to integrate rhythm and movement! The Drumming desk was designed based on the research supporting the link between rhythm, movement, and learning.
WHAT THE RESEARCH TELLS US:
- Rhythmic abilities are linked to language and literacy processes
- Rhythm helps organize events into predictable and coherent patterns
- In music, rhythm is the primary element that creates the perception of time.
- In speech, rhythm helps us select and extrapolate phonemes, syllables, words, and phrases from an ongoing speech stream. Having good rhythmic skills, appears to be essential not only for music or dance but also for language and communication skills.
- Rhythm skills can be improved through practice! Rhythm abilities are not simply inherited.
- Struggling with certain rhythmic skills can reflect underlying language and/or perceptual impairments; making this a critical foundation of learning readiness. Practicing this foundation at an early age helps to form the foundation to improve literacy and auditory processing

Did you know? Hearing a steady beat and keeping a steady beat develops the internal dialogue, that little voice inside your head. This inner dialogue starts around 3-5 years old by hearing/listening to human voices (talk, sing, pitch) and continues to develop into adulthood. Internal dialogue is necessary for acquiring receptive and expressive language.
These concepts aid the brain in auditory discrimination by sounding out letter sounds and words in a receptive language and discriminating words in spoken language.
FOOTPRINT IS THE SAME AS THE STANDARD KC-35 PEDAL DESK - 28x40in floor space required. Seat is Adjustable. Drum can be played independent of pedalling, and visa versa.
