African Drumming

African Drumming

Every Monday over the last four weeks each class has engaged in African Drumming workshops.

Building on knowledge and skill from last year, each class have been 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.  They connect to rhythm and sound using a variety of percussion instruments, bells and shakers. It really is great fun!!

Everybody looks forward to drumming time each Monday. 🥁😀 We have two drumming sessions left this term.

Many thanks to Pat for the fun drumming lessons 👏
