My Body Percussion program works with students on how to use their body to create rhythm and sound. As well as fun building block exercises, students will learn how to play beats and challenge themselves in this enjoyable, physical and interactive workshop. Students will be challenged with physical coordination and memory retention activities as they learn how to use their body and make music with physical movement.
Let me bring the world of Bucket Drumming to your group. This is a highly energetic and interactive workshop where students will learn to play rhythms and beats using sticks and buckets. Students are encouraged to participate, with team building being a focus for putting group pieces together. Bucket Patrol has also been extremely successful with disengaged boys groups for schools and communities.
A highly interactive Hybrid Arts Workshop designed to engage students from start to finish, as they become the star performers in this exciting blend of dance and rhythm. Working as a team becomes an essential part of the performance as groups work together to learn about and perform spirited South American pieces.

Grant uses his Drumset and African Djembe to lead the group through different rhythms and movement which combine for a percussion extravaganza. Oh, and let's not forget the Samba Dance party to close the session!
