High School and College Workshops

KEEP THE BEAT high school and college school workshops in Launceston, Hobart, Devenport and throughout Tasmania Australia introduce students to the evidence based therapeutic benefits of group drumming with the inclusive and holistic approach of traditional Djembe West African style drumming.

IMG_52981Our hands on workshops directly relate to many aspects of the curriculum such as music, drama, dance and cultural studies.

Everyone gets a percussion instrument to play!

KEEP THE BEAT will bring an instrument for each participant to your school. Our professional facilitators will guide the group on a rhythmic journey which teaches about traditional African culture and music. We use simple, multi part African rhythms to create a powerful, connected group experience. Offering a range of activities such as African drumming, singing traditional songs, body percussion, groove tube sessions, storytelling, dance and movement, free expression, warm ups and performance. Can be for a single class, the whole year, or we can run multiple sessions to incorporate the whole school. Our sessions are well structured, entertaining, fun, and educational and are perfect for all levels and ages.
