We can provide your school with anything from a half day workshop up to a week long project. The structure of a day can be adapted purely to your requirements.
An interactive session for assemblies and hands on sessions for classes.Learn about the Balafon from Ghana, the Berimbau from Brazil, the Dumbek from North Africa, the Bongos from Cuba and a lot more weird and wonderful instruments – a real journey through the sounds of the world. An assembly for the whole school followed by in depth, hands-on workshops with the instruments.
Samba is one of the most accessible musical art forms available to all ages and is fun and easy to understand, a great gateway to music for children. Using a variety of Afro-Brazilian instruments a session can consist of short demonstration of the following: Surdo (large bass drum), Caixa (snare), Tamborim (small tambourine), Ago-go bell (double headed cowbell) and various other Samba instruments used in the Rio Carnival. By the end of the session the class is playing together confidently as a complete Samba band.
Dustbins, car wheels, drain pipes, scrap metal…………. an industry of sound! A remarkable session creating a huge array of sounds and rhythms inspiring environmental awareness. Create your very own schools junk band at no cost!
Even teachers need a break so let us do it for you. This session can be used as a tool for learning the basics of teaching samba percussion to children or simply as a team building, stress busting session for the whole staff, everyone can benefit from banging a drum from time to time! An accompanying dance session to this is also available and will revitalise even the most apprehensive participant! Most excellent fun! A great ‘team building’ session for all the staff.
Your school can experience a whole week of drumming, dance, song and costume making. Our experienced team of carnival animateurs will come into school for 3-5 days and transform the pupils into a complete carnival group. From Reception to year 6, everyone can be involved and costumed for a big finale. These residencies can be celebrated in real style with anything from a school hall performance for family and friends to a carnival street procession around the locality for the whole community to enjoy. We have a long list of very satisfied schools so can provide recommendations for you.
