This all-day ‘Workshop and CPD – Getting Started’ session is for schools who are just beginning Whole Class Ensemble Teaching in African Drumming, Brazilian Samba, Caribbean Steel Pans, Indonesian Gamelan or World Percussion. The day’s programme is flexible and can be tailored to fit the school timetable and specific needs. We can include up to 6 class workshops and 2 CPD sessions with the aim of ensuring that everyone hits the ground running and that your class teachers have the expertise and confidence to take things forward.
In the two CPD sessions (or a single, longer session) we’ll pass over key music workshop skills and prepare your teachers for their first class workshops. In the class workshops, with teachers participating or assisting, we’ll cover basic playing techniques, first exercises in playing together, how best to practise and make rapid progress towards the first performance.
