Lindsay Neeley

P.E. Teacher

Pittsburg Primary School, United States of America

Used DrumFIT Schools Program weekly for 0–3 months

May 2022

I absolutely love it! The workout, the curriculum, it just makes sense. They have made this program so easy to use and it fits the physical and knowledge bound needs that students have to use in order to succeed.

Lindsay Neeley found DrumFIT Schools Program:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The program has easy to use videos that cover alot of the T.E.K.S that we are required to teach. I don't have to search around very long for different videos that cover what I need to teach.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Students are more excited to want to come to P.E. to play on the drums. They enjoy hitting the balls and don't even realize that they are doing cardio. Students seem to more willing to pay attention and more enthusiastic to participate.
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Students who previously may have had behavioral issues, have found an outlet that allows them to express it. I have seen students who have a hard time following directions, being able to show off in a positive way.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Students are more knowledgeable about learning how to do beats and taps with the drums and drumsticks. They are also learning how to do more rhythmic movements by utilizing this program.

  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    I used DrumFIT as an after school club and it took all of the workload and preparation away from the club.

    The engagement piece of DrumFIT keeps the student involved and improves classroom management because they want to participate.
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    The students have enjoyed learning about wellness and fitness through the different fitness activities we've completed during our club time. With the majority of students it did help with their behavior.

I love the program and would use it again. I would love a more Indigenous side of it too where there are elders or other Indigenous people with traditional drumming music.

Nicole M found DrumFIT Schools Program:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    With the curriculum video's already created it allows me to pick and choose different options for my K-6 students and know the outcomes I am covering in PE.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    I am able to have a high impact workout for my students that is new and exciting and it combines PE outcomes as well as Music outcomes when learning new rhythms and routines.
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Students who often require more guidance to listen to instruction are able to begin the program right away and get their movements out. They typically respond well to the program and experience sucess.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    They become acquainted with new opportunities and ways of expressing themselves.

Absolutely!! Our kids and staff love DrumFit and so do we the PE teachers!!

Moira Brookshire found DrumFIT Schools Program:

It's a lot of work to set up daily and even though the kids enjoyed it. Depending on the grade many of them got bored rather quickly. I did the program for a total of 4-6 times per class.

S. McCabe

Health & P.E. Teacher (K-6)

Penn Manor School District, United States

Used DrumFIT Schools Program occasionally for 7–12 months

Nov 2021

I like the idea behind the program and I have enjoyed implementing it. However, with limited storage, the time that it takes to inflate all of the balls before a unit beginning, and then deflating them and storing them away at the end is significant.

S. McCabe found DrumFIT Schools Program:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Finding the "right" lesson in the video library takes time. Also, preparing the equipment is a HUGE time commitment. Connecting the bases and then inflating 30 balls with two pumps takes a 1-2 hours due to overheating of the pumps.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    After taking the time to find the right lesson(s) for your students, the video does the teaching. As a teacher, you may float, encourage, and engage with your students.
  • Slightly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    If students want to act out, they will act out, regardless. But some of the less "athletic" students really enjoy getting active in a different way.
  • Not significantly builds student knowledge
