Afriquetone works with schools to deliver African Drumming Workshops to children of various ages. We have delivered numerous drumming workshops to different schools and community centers across Scotland. Most of these workshops have been one day events, whereby children are given the experience of African drumming and percussion.
Our Workshops offer a creative and positive forum for schools kids, and they meet the requirements for the ‘Curriculum of Excellence’ - view our presentation to find out how.
Workshops start by getting the children to do a few stretching exercises for the wrists and to relax the muscles of the arms. Then a brief description of the drums and percussion that will be used is given.
Following on, the children are introduced to hand drumming techniques in a way they can relate to (Stories and games are normally used)
Finally, they get to make up different rhythms under our supervision and guidance. So far, this has been a fun experience for the children and their teachers.
