African drumming is a popular workshop activity. We have facilitated these popular drum workshops with every age group. That is to children of all ages and abilities including children with disabilities. Also, workshops are available for adults.
Artists bring 5 different types of African drum to the workshops, large and small. Most are hand crafted and carved with hardwood bases and genuine goat skins.
African drumming is popular for Black History month workshops, but our drumming workshops are popular for events that aim to help promote cultural diversity throughout the year.
African drumming workshops are fun, versatile and can even work well with mixed aged groups, or children with adults. With a range of African bongo’s, djembe drums, and larger bougarabou drums, along with other traditional instruments, it’s educational and fun. African drumming workshops can go down well for events, as an after school or educational activity linked to music or culture. African drumming is also a great tool for team building for corporate training days.
With over ten years of experience, we have never known this workshop not to go well. From infant and junior school children, to senior school children, teenagers and adults, it’s a fun activity.
The workshops are usuallyn limited to 1hr and a maximum of 15 per session so if you are booking this for a class of thirty children you would need to book us for two hours. In a full day we can deliver 4 x 1hr sessions.
Over the years we have found African drumming to be amongst our most popular and diverse workshops. That is because it works well with children of all ages and abilities. So, boys and girls, children and teenagers and adults and even old people. Everyone seems to enjoy African drumming.
We have been booked regularly for schools (infants, juniors and secondary), for events, youth clubs and children’s organisations and activities that require an African cultural emphasis.
Book workshops for Black History Month Black history month is upon us.
Black history month can help children of all cultures understand that self-worth is not confined to one culture, belief system or skin colour. Black history month is important whether your school is in a multi-cultural area or mono-cultural. It is often the case that mono-cultural areas have even more need to educating children on the positive and challenging aspects of Black people’s experiences in the UK. It used to be that the focus was often on internationally renowned black artists such as Bob Marley or Jay Z and so on. It is now the case that many schools choose to focus on more local black British subjects and not just to confined to music or sports.
A great way to learn about these important historical (and living) black achievers is through the medium of rapping and beat boxing. Rapping itself stems from the African oral traditional of story telling over beats and Jamaican toasting, so the genre fits. Other schools may choose to do something more traditional for Black History Month, such as African drumming or African mask making and Poetry, any of which we can deliver! If a school wishes to focus on other cultures we provide interesting activities such as Japanese origami and Chinese dance. Whatever you need for ‘Black History Month’ Nugent Education Ltd can help.
