The Rhythm Development Programme is led by Ross Morgan and workshops are taken as full classroom lessons throughout the academic year. Ross approaches his music workshops for Rhythm from an un-tuned percussion perspective. As an active drummer and percussion player this gives him the valuable tools to help the children gain a solid foundation in rhythmic skills with a specialist approach to using percussion instruments to practically explore and further their musical ability. If you can shake, scrape, strike with a stick or beater, whack together, or hit it with part of your body then chances are you will see and hear it in Ross’ workshops!
Rhythm Workshops are designed and delivered in line with Curriculum for Excellence and not only highlight outcomes pertaining to Expressive Arts but also utilise Literacy, Numeracy, Health and Wellbeing and Social Studies to enhance the learning experience and support the curricula agenda within each school.
