Our Junk Percussion workshop is a wonderful way for children to learn to question whether an item is ‘rubbish’ or ‘reusable’ whilst pushing the limits of music and rhythm to another level. After being introduced to the instruments, the children will have fantastic fun playing them whilst gaining valuable experience of working as a team and learning how old pots, pans, brushes and boxes can all be recycled to form a “Junk” orchestra.
The junk nature of the instruments will give children the freedom to express themselves, not to mention a great sense of achievement. A Junk Percussion Workshop will make children look at the objects around them in a very different light and they will see that rhythm is everywhere!
The Junk Percussion Workshops from Primary Workshops for Schools links to a number of curriculum subjects such as Science, Art, Music and Design Technology and is also popular during Arts Week.
Up to 8 sessions
A typical workshop commences with an assembly during which our percussionist will demonstrate how junk can actually be used to create rhythm. In a full day, our workshop can consist of up to 8 sessions which culminate in an engaging performance at the end allowing the children to deliver their rhythmical compositions.
