Description

Our Samba drumming, Junk Percussion and Carnival projects have been very successful for over 24 years! So that’s literally thousands of children we have taught.

Brazilian Samba:
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 beginners.

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. A brief talk about the history and culture of the Rio carnival also accompanies the demonstration.

Junk percussion:
Is an amazing journey with inanimate objects constructing new boundaries in music making.
Drainpipes: with u-bends make for an interesting resonance played with foam bats
Car Wheels: a wheely good metal sound thrashed out on old car wheels, minus the rubber!
Metal bins: the funky bin, with broom handles and energy, it’s not a rubbish sound but a clatter of metal providing the driving hum for the whole group.

The workshops can run with 2-5 classes and approximately 30 children in each.
We can offer assemblies to the whole school and performances by the children to pupils or parents.

Carnival Residencies:
3-5 day extravaganza using any or all elements of drumming, dance and costume making.

Please summarize why you are great to support learning.
With over 24 years of teaching experience to thousands of children we have a great understanding of experiential learning
