African & South American Drumming Workshop

Education Group’s African Drumming and Percussion Workshop introduces every child to music, rhythm and songs from Africa or Latin America. The children play traditional instruments and sing songs from West Africa or create a samba style.

This drumming workshop is suitable for all age groups and Education Group provides drums for every child in the class including djembes and samba percussion. It is also aligned to targets within Key Stages One and Two of the Music National Curriculum.

Many schools book this workshop during Black History Month.

African Drumming Workshop

Using traditional African drums, children create sounds and music from the African continent. Every child has the opportunity to immerse themselves in a different culture whilst they experience a feeling of unity as part of a drum circle.

Samba Drumming Workshop

Bring a Latin flavour to your primary school and hear the children create music from South America. Using various percussion instruments, our facilitators help the children to create rhythms and sounds that will make you want to samba your way through the school day. These workshops are a great introduction to rhythm and basic percussion techniques.
