transition year workshops

Posted by & filed under Music Lessons.

As the 2018-19 school year closes for us, we thought we’d have a look ahead at the next school year! Our workshops are interactive, fun and educational, and are designed to spark a lifelong interest in music for pupils.
Here are the workshops we are currently offering for the year 2019-20:

Primary Schools:

Let’s Drum

Through games, activities and performing, our drumming workshops allow primary school students to explore the percussion family,. We aim to develop their understanding of rhythm and improve their rhythmical ability, whilst performing as part of a drumming ensemble.

 

Let’s Sing

These creative singing workshops explore the voice through games and activities. Students investigate the importance of breathing and posture whilst singing and  each pupil’s aural awareness is developed.

Let’s Perform

These Musical theatre sessions give students a glimpse into musical theatre. Commencing with team building ‘ice-breaker’ activities, vocal warm ups and improvisation activities, students go on to discover the importance of breathing, vocal technique, drama and movement.

 

Let’s Explore

Available as a one day or three-part workshop these sessions aim to increase every child’s ability, awareness and understanding of the world of music. During classes, students discover that music tells a story. With the help of our professional tutors, they explore the role of the conductor and investigate the importance of percussion. Pupils also learn about dynamics, tempo, mood, the beat and rhythm. Students learn and perform songs, compose music using set sounds and play along to music.
