Formation Work

Formation work adds fun and variety to your Golden Beats class. Try different formations such as a circle, parallel lines, square, diamond, or star. (See the Drums Alive® Basic Instructor manual or the Drums Alive® Basic Instructor Online Home Study Course for ideas).


Ice breakers, socialization games, and rhythm/hand-clapping games are an important part of the Golden Beats program. Select one or two for each class.

Brain Body Training

Include elements of brain body training throughout your class. It may be in the cardiovascular choreography, or you may choose to take time in the beginning or the end of the class to try some new experiences with your students.
