African Drumming Workshop

England, Scotland, Wales

Investigate the sounds and rhythms of Africa. Pupils will learn the history of the Djembe drum and the significance of drumming in African culture. They will have access to a range of African instruments such as; large and medium Djembes, Shakeres and Ghana Bells. African drumming workshops for primary schools have the potential to teach children so much. As they navigate the rich culture and sounds of Africa, children will learn about music, freedom of expression and tolerance

Your class will…

  • Experiment with African instruments.
  • Explore new sounds and rhythms.
  • Build confidence and concentration skills.
  • Have a great day!

Rock School UK can work with four classes across the school day, each class (maximum 35 pupils) working for one hour long session or with two classes for around two hours each. Although a performance is optional, we do encourage this at the end of the session. This allows parents, teachers are peers to share in the children’s success!

Bhangra Indian Drumming, Samba Drumming and Junk Funk and Scrap Rap also available!

"Our Drumming day was just the BEST!!! I had a feeling that it would be good! The pupil sessions were great - the enthusiasm of the Facilitator just encouraged all children to get involved. The staff session was OUTSTANDING - such good fun - we didn't want to stop. So I want to look at another date in the summer term - to involve a performance to our parents at the end of the day. You should feel very proud of the activities you take into schools. Thank you! "
