African & South American Drumming Workshop

Education Group’s Drumming and Percussion Workshops introduce 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.

These drumming workshops are suitable for all age groups. We provide instruments for every child in the class including djembes and samba percussion. These workshops are a great introduction to rhythm and basic percussion techniques.

They are aligned to targets within Key Stages One and Two of the Music National Curriculum.

African Drumming Workshop

Using traditional African djembe 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.
