SHAKE A RHYTHM

Percussion workshop

Nizami believes rhythm is inside everyone! Using hands, feet and simple hand percussion instruments, Nizami will take you on a journey to discover your inner rhythm, playing on beats, off beats and even some odd beats in this one hour workshop!

Marimba workshop

Marimbas are happy sounding, easy to learn melodic percussion instruments. The keys are made from wood, and the sound is natural and warm. As the marimbas are diatonic (white keys only on a keyboard) and the notes are written on each key as a letter, the marimba is easy to learn. Within an hour workshop you will be able to play a multipart piece together and will learn the magic of the marimba and its ability to put a smile on your face! 

Maximum of 30 participants per workshop, marimbas provided.

Hitty Hitty Bang Bang Marimba workshops for schools

Workshops are run by 1, 2 or 3 teachers, depending on need. We recommend around 1 marimba teacher for every 8 – 10 players if the participants are under 15. All three marimba workshop teachers have blue cards. For classes age 15 and over one teacher can cater for up to 30 participants.

There will be several three octave marimbas and a bass marimba available. It is possible to fit 5 or 6 players on each of the 3 octave marimbas, but 3 players per marimba is preferred. The bass marimba can have 2 players. We can have a maximum of 30 players at a workshop. Multiple workshops can be run if needed. A workshop can be 1 hour or 1 1/2 hours.
