Rhythm skills for non-percussionists
Let’s get counting! Students will work with our facilitator in a 45 to 90-minute session focusing on pulse and rhythm. Using body percussion games, polyrhythms and grooves from around the world this interactive session will be tailored to suit the needs and levels of your group.
How to Practice
We all know it is difficult to maintain your musical mojo in lockdown! A practical session packed with top tips which explores different approaches to practice. In this interactive and engaging session with Owen Cox or Andrea Vogler, we’ll help your students to think about how they can practice their instruments at home and explore ways of keeping practice time varied and interesting when help from peers, teachers and friends is not as easily accessed as usual!
