In this session we will explore what to do with the various percussion instruments found in primary school classrooms. This session will build teacher confidence and support teachers to introduce percussion instruments to KS1 and KS2 learning. You’ll leave with practical ways of exploring the musical elements with pupils at primary school age!
This session is suitable for all teachers of primary school children, including teaching assistants, trainee teachers and newly qualified teachers. No musical experience necessary!
