Students will get a chance to learn about the marimba, congas, surdos, djembes and music from different regions in Africa, Brazil, Mexico and Cuba. We know making music together has the power to transform lives, enrich our day and educate us about different cultures and traditions around the world. We will focus on a different region or country each day, working towards a final performance of the music we learn over the week for parents and the community centre.
