Let’s Drum

Through games, activities and performing our drumming workshops allow children to explore the percussion family, develop their understanding of rhythm, improve their rhythmical ability and perform as part of a drumming ensemble. Our drumming sessions incorporate station learning and ensure that each child gets an opportunity to play a range of percussion instruments. Let’s Drum culminate in an end-of-workshop performance that combines the different rhythms and activities covered during the session together.

This Workshop Aims to:
  • give children an opportunity to learn about and perform on a range of drums and percussion instruments
  • give children the opportunity to learn about the importance of the beat
  • give children the opportunity to learn about and perform a range of rhythms suitable for their class group culminating in a group performance

Let's Sing

One of our most popular music workshops, ‘Let’s Sing’ is an excellent way of encouraging and improving each child’s ability to sing. Our singing workshops explore the voice through games and activities, investigate the importance of breathing and posture and develop each pupil’s aural awareness. The children learn a song during the workshop with workshops culminating in a performance of the song learnt.

This Workshop Aims to:
  • explore the sounds of the voice and professional singing technique
  • learn about vocal tone, pitch, dynamics and rhythm
  • give every child the opportunity to perform in a group performance that culminates in bringing all of the material covered and skills developed together

Let’s Perform

Through integrating music with drama and movement our musical theatre workshop for gives children a taste of the exciting world of musical theatre. Although all our workshops are highly interactive and energetic, each section is conducted in a calm, fun and non-pressurized environment. The workshops culminate in an end of session performance.

This Workshop Aims to:
  • develop self-expression and self-confidence through music, drama and movement
  • give students the opportunity to learn about vocal tone, pitch, posture, dynamics and rhythm
  • give every child the opportunity to perform in a group performance that culminates in bringing all of the material covered and skills developed together

Let’s Explore

These workshops are great for children aged between 4 and 8 years of age.
