7 to 12 year olds
In this introductory segment about body percussion, we focus on the natural beats of our body (heart, breathing, steps). We approach musical notions such as pulsation. We develop our sense of rhythm.
Experience the clapping of hands, called in Spanish “palmas” which accompanies the Flamenco music and dance.
Learn the art of “foot tapping” which accompanies the violin, accordion and singing in traditional French Canadian festivals.
Practice this dance music created by the miners of South Africa.
Try to imitate the sounds of the drums with your mouth.
