Voices of Africa Music Workshop

27th November 2019

Key Stage 2 children were treated to a 'Voices of Africa' music workshop from Gateshead Music Service - this was an interactive singing and drumming session, which really got everyone's pulses going.  The children were taught how to create bass and tone notes on djembe drums by hitting the centre or slapping the edge of the skin.  There were plenty of volunteers to keep various rhythms, which they did very well - these accompanied the African songs taught by the workshop team.   The session was a lot of fun, as you can see from the videos below.  Even our kitchen staff couldn't resist a go - actually, they were pretty good!
