Music - Drumming

ACO Inspire Quartet

Since November 2013, the Australian Children's Music Foundation have generously sponsored a music program at our school.

 

Children from Prep - Year 6 learn to play the djembe drums, sing and learn rhythms and music notation.

 

'I love drumming!

 

'I like drumming because I never knew how to do drumming before and now Phil has taught us how to drum and read music.'

 

'When everyone cooperates and plays together it sounds awesome!'

 

'I look forward to coming to school on Fridays because I like drumming. It gets me pumped.'

 

During the year, the students develop their musical knowledge, their drumming abilities and are learning songs, rhythms, and percussion arrangements. They have had the wonderful opportunity to work with the Australian Chamber Orchestra's Inspire Quartet as well as listen to their beautiful music and participate in concerts with them.
