I have given many workshops in schools, ranging from piano workshops to Samba drumming.

Samba Drumming

I can provide authentic samba instruments for up to 22 children, and sessions usually last around 40-60 minutes. I am happy to give several sessions in a morning/afternoon. Sessions start with some fun warm up games, encouraging listening and team work. There will be an introduction to Samba music and culture. The children will then get to try out the different Samba instruments. By the end of the session the children will be able to perform a basic Samba, incorporating basic Samba rhythms, and call and response.

Piano workshops

I am happy to work with children of any age and ability. Whilst sessions will be one to one, I will involve the group in discussions about general issues, such as practice techniques; dealing with nerves in performance.
