African Drumming Workshop
On Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th June Year 7 students worked with African music specialist, Sarah Westwood, in an hour-long intensive African drumming workshop.
During each session students were given an insight to the culture from which African drumming evolved and were given the opportunity to play a number of different instruments including the West African Djembe, Dundun and the Talking Drum from Ghana. During the hour long workshop students developed a number of playing techniques including call and response sections which were led by students.
The workshop culminated in a final group performance. This opportunity was made possible thanks to an award given by the King Charles I School Appeal Trust.
