Bash Your Trash Percussion Workshop

"Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act" The National Curriculum for Education

Bash Your Trash

The “Bash Your Trash” workshop meets all the aims and objectives of Samba Bamba by using everyday objects such as plastic bins, plastic pipe, dog dishes, dustpans etc and was borne out of my own experience as a child playing pots and pans with wooden spoons, my mum got fed up replacing them so she got me a drum kit too my delight and the neighbours trepidation!

A creative workshop with lots of fun for everyone!

Pick up that pipe and hit that bin!!
