The Year 6 pupils are in full rehearsal mode ahead of their drumming concert at the Royal Festival Hall on the 30th January. Each week we welcome Sandra and Gina from Southwark Music Services into our school for some expert tuition.
The Percussion Festival is a collaborative project with other primary and secondary schools in the borough. We will soon meet up with the other schools so that we can piece together the individual rhythms that we are learning.
Singing is also part of the performance. A recent session involved the pupils rotating the lead parts. This is a call and response approach. The lead singer controls the session, inviting a response from our friends.
Invitations to the Percussion Concert will be sent out to parents and carers closer to the event.
