Our World Music workshops involve ensemble playing for all pupils from the start. They immediately gain the benefits of playing music together and an understanding of musical structure. They also develop memory, improvisation and performance skills. This is especially important for pupils who may not otherwise have the chance to play in a group situation. Instrumental technique is approachable so that all students master the essentials.
The World Music team
Our team of World Music tutors offer high level teaching skills and a wealth of instrument specific knowledge to each workshop. They will always consult with you on options for your school; musical content, number of groups and concerts for the school or parents, to make sure your pupils gain the greatest value from the experience.
Group sizes, space and workshop lengths
All instruments and equipment are supplied.
A normal sized classroom, music room or part of a hall is sufficient space. Gamelan requires the largest area (35 square metres). High ceilings are suggested for Taiko with a wide door from the outside to get the larger drums in.
All our workshops are designed to accommodate a full class of students. Workshop time may be used flexibly; for example, it may be divided between several groups to include more students, or concentrated on fewer groups with material covered in more depth.
