Music Week!

Drum work

Music Week was a very noisy affair this year with Percussion being the key theme of the week. First, children were very thrilled to welcome Maria, who ran an exciting World Percussion workshop and taught children how to play Latin rhythms using djembe drums, claves and tambourims to make a samba band, led by Maria’s samba whistle.

Later in the week Mr Marshall, the school drum teacher came to visit. He showed children all different styles of drumming, ranging from jazz to rock to latin, and let some lucky volunteers have a go the different parts of the kit, working together to create a beat.
