Drumming on Sunday in Tisbury

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.
