CHERUBIM Music Trust has organised a co-operative drumming day of workshops for children and parents on Sunday 15th March.
In the morning, primary age children and their parents can discover the exhilaration of collective drumming. Secondary age tweens and teens can develop rhythmic coordination and interplay in the afternoon.
The workshops, in the Victoria Hall in Tisbury, will be led by Sehyogue Aulakh and colleagues from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. The participants will look at a range of music from Brazilian samba to African djembe and body percussion.
The workshop, presented by Cherubim Music Trust, gives local children opportunities for music-making. It features the Trust’s vibraphone recipient, percussionist Sehyogue. Born in Plymouth, she was a student at Chethams Specialist Music School in Manchester and is now a BMus student as the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. She has performed at the BBC Proms for the last three years as a member of different ensembles. Last Summer she gave a joint concert in Tisbury with Cherubim’s other percussionist, Toril Azzalini-Machecler.
There are only 40 places in each workshop, so early booking is advised. Free places are available to those on low wages.
