We were delighted to support Gillamoor C of E Primary School by providing 28 drums for their online African Drumming Workshop.
We donated the drums after the African Drumming Workshop, organised by North Yorkshire County Music Service, moved online due to coronavirus restrictions.
Andrea Hayes, Headteacher of Gillamoor C of E Primary School, said: “The 28 drums were collected and saved what proved to be an excellent and enjoyable day.
“The Key Stage 1 pupils learnt how to play the drums so that they could get different sounds and then learnt an African tune to play.
“The Key Stage 2 pupils put their learning of dynamics, rhythm and timbre into practice and composed their own piece of music.
“The pupils loved finding out about the different sounds the drums make and had so much fun. An all-round thoroughly great day, Asante (thank you, in Swahili) to Su and St Peter's School.”
