Samba Workshop

Year 5 enjoy learning new music skills

Children in Year 5 recently visited Cliff Park High School to take part in a partnership samba workshop. This was led by Dan, the Musician in Residence, who taught the children about a range of musical skills linked to samba drumming. The children were able to play a variety of drums whilst learning about elements such as musical pulse, dynamics and tempo. They also learned about the importance of teamwork and listening skills when playing as an ensemble and explored different activities to show their sense of rhythm and musicality. This was a fantastic opportunity and an experience the children thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to all everyone involved at Cliff Park High School and we look forward to more music making in the future!
