This workshops gives students an introduction into the inner workings of guitars. Children will learn about the parts of a guitar, basic strumming techniques, simple chords, amoung other tools for children of all ages and skill levels.
The drumming workshop uses djembes, a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa, to teach children basic rhythmic patterns, different sound types, a number of drumming techniques, as well as how different rhythms and sounds interact with one another to create beautiful rhythmic harmonies.
Boomwhackers, are light weight, easy to use, hollow, colour-coded, plastic tubes that have been cut to different lengths in order to tune them to different musical pitches. They are a member of the percussion family. Boomwhackers produce sound when struck against any surface. This workshop allows children to get a glimpse at how boomwhackers work through a hands on, interactive, group set-up.
Through this program, our goal is to:
- Create barrier free introductions to instruments and music, encouraging a love and respect for the arts
- Promote creative development and teamwork through musical education
