Beatboxing and Rap:

Learn the techniques for creating beats with just your voice and a microphone, these sessions can particularly engage teenage boys who are reluctant to be involved in vocal work.  The session can also include writing lyrics for raps, which helps develop literacy and links to poetic and linguistic devices.

Chinese Music Making:

Experience the musical heritage of China and try out different traditional Chinese instruments such as the Ruan (moon guitar) and Dizi (flute).  We have Chinese percussion of all shapes and sizes and can teach classes new rhythms and traditional songs to sing.  We can also bring a Chinese dragon and share the significance of its place in Chinese culture.

Samba Drumming:

We draw on 20 years’ experience of performing and teaching Samba music, and use traditional Brazilian teaching techniques; vocalising then beating the rhythms.  We can bring a whole array of kit, such as drums, bells and shakers so everyone can be involved.

West African Drumming:

A fun, simple and inclusive drumming workshop, we use authentic djembes (made from wood and goatskin).  They are hand percussion instruments so no sticks are required and work well with call and response group exercises building complex rhythms over time.

Songwriting:

Working with experienced and talented songwriters to create and record new songs, these workshops are great for developing language, creativity and self-expression.  It can link with any thematic or curriculum area of your choice, utilising different musical genres, music tech and styles to make something new.
