African Drumming

Year 5 enjoy an African Drumming Session

The girls and boys in Year 5 enjoyed learning to drum in African style with Mr Ian Bamford from Bolton Music Centre.  They discovered that the drums were carved from wood and covered in goat skin.  Next, they were able to learn a number of rhythmic patterns which they then layered together to make an impressive (and very noisy!) sound.

Everyone really enjoyed the session and said they would love to do it again!
