This year, for the first time, Mr Proctor from Love Music Trust, is leading World Percussion sessions for children in Key Stage 2. The children have a hour lesson, once a week. During the autumn term the focus was Brazilian Samba rhythms and instruments. In the spring term the children have enjoyed playing African Djembe drums. This term the stimulus will be the musical 'Stomp'.
A message from Mr Proctor
I am pleased to announce that I am opening a Brazilian Samba School.
"I have been inspired by my travels to Rio to open up an opportunity for young people to investigate, play and perform together, learning advanced percussion skills. I am really excited and anyone aged 7-19 is welcome to join. We will meet every Thursday evening from 5.30-6.45pm at Sandbach School, CW11 3NT. It is a very unique extra-curricular group as there really is nothing quite like it in Cheshire at the moment. It will have a progressive and advanced nature so that the children can discover more exciting and authentic music than we have time for in school. The cost for the class is only £3 per week (10 weeks per term) which is a very good value hobby/club to have I reckon."
