AMMusic resident percussion ensemble "Six Stix" are proud to present workshops tailored to your school's educational requirements. Lining up with either world themes or wider music in the national curriculum, Six Stix begin the day with a short concert, demonstrating different instruments on set theme (discussed with customer).
From this point we take part in some warm up games and activities before starting to learn about the chosen genre. Some popular themes so far have been:
- Rubbish (music from recycled materials)
- Samba (music from Brazil)
- African Drumming
- Irish Music (pipe drumming and Irish dance music)
- Fiesta! (party music)
- Caribbean (music from the islands: can include reggae)
After teaching some basic principles, Six Stix split into small groups to work on individual compositions. These are then showcased at the end of the day.
For shorter workshops, we can provide a concert and brief but participative introduction to the chosen genre.
Workshops are suitable for ages 2-102 as we can tailor the level accordingly!Enquire about our Six Stix Percussion workshops
