African Drumming

African Drumming

Every Monday over the next 6 weeks each class will engage in African Drumming workshops.

They will be introduced to basic rhythmic concepts of West African and world percussion through drumming, chanting, body percussion, call and response and storytelling.

Using the West African Djembe (pronounced djem – bay) students assemble in the drum circle.

Children will connect to rhythm and sound using a variety of percussion instruments, bells and shakers. 

The first workshop was enjoyed by all children and we are really looking forward to the next few weeks.
