Discover in a Day

‘Discover in a Day’ provides your pupils the opportunity to meet the criteria for Arts Award Discover through our Taster Day Workshops.
Give your students a tour of Latin American rhythms with our body percussion and samba drumming workshops, all designed to be high-energy and engaging learning experiences in their own right. Not only will pupils participate in active music making but they’ll explore the cultural and historical background of the music they’re performing.
As qualified teachers and Arts Award Advisors, our facilitators will also promote reflective practice to ensure that pupils leave the workshops with a deep understanding of the music and its context.
