Single Sessions

Include drumming, dancing and singing as standard, though we can easily adapt to suit your specifications. All of our facilitators are experienced and unique performers, each with their own story and style. Usually, we kick off with a short performance and introduce ourselves, getting everyone excited about the music. We move into the fun quickly with drumming, teaching African rhythms and musical games. At the end of the session we have question time, where students can ask the facilitator about their background, culture, music and about Africa.

Programmes

Maximise the potential learning outcomes of studying African drum and dance by integrating a 4 week to full term Programme into your curriculum, suitable for all ages and abilities. We develop the ensemble, practise technique and dexterity, add songs, and building towards a memorable high-energy student concert! Under the guidance of an experienced teacher, Programmes offer students the chance to learn an instrument, be a part of a group in a meaningful way, and does wonders for their confidence. Showcasing their piece at a school concert at the end of the Programme provides an important sense of accomplishment.

Inclusive, fun and educational – Kindergarten workshops are more popular than ever!
