About:

If you want to empower and inspire the students in your school using a fresh approach then you need to give them a high energy Kids on Congas drumming experience! Our drumming sessions in schools are a fabulous musical experience, which make a big impact and most importantly support and encourage the students development. The activities are designed specifically for each age group, offer a high level of energy, teamwork and challenges and can be tailored to your needs.

What can Kids on Congas provide for your school?

  • In-school drumming workshops for a single class or the whole school (up to 30x students at a time) and everybody gets a drum
  • A special course of lessons for groups of students leading to a performance at the end
  • Team building activity at leadership camps or for any other school event
  • Team building drumming workshops for teachers (why should the kids have all the fun!)

What do the sessions involve?

Apart from a whole lot of fun, drums and percussion will be provided for a range of age specific hand drumming activities, which will be tailored to both the age group and the desired program including;

  • African rhythms
  • Hand drumming techniques
  • Call and response
  • Accents, dynamics and polyrhythms
  • An introduction to soloing

What are the benefits to the children?

The in school drumming workshops encourage development of the following;

  • Hand/eye coordination
  • Listening skills and social skills
  • Teamwork and self-esteem
  • Stress release
  • Empowerment

Who will be facilitating the school drumming?

The students will be in great hands with one of Sydney’s most experienced percussionists facilitating. Craig Morrison has lived and studied in West Africa and has been studying Cuban percussion and culture for decades. He has strong knowledge of authentic music traditions which he can impart to the students. Craig is an inspired, enthusiastic facilitator who is known for bringing the best out in his students.

We would love to drum with you and most importantly the students in your school.
