Year 7 Music Incursion – Drum Beats

Year 7 were thrilled to participate in the “Drum Beats” music incursion on Tuesday 3rd July. Each student was given a traditional African drum to play and were led by two master African drummers. Students learned to play a variety of rhythms and grooves and participated in ‘call and response’ activities that are a large feature in African drumming. Students also showed their enthusiasm through singing traditional African songs as well as learning an African dance. We thank the students for the energy and enthusiasm they brought to this activity.
