Turntablism

We now have a unique new Turntablism Unit of Work available for Secondary schools. The scheme aims to provide a new dimension to pupils' music making and engage and inspire children with an alternative genre of music. The project includes teacher training, a six lesson planned unit with accompanying PowerPoints and interactive tutorial video clips for each lesson. For a half term, your school will have loan of 16 pairs of turntables which caters for up to 32 learners. This equipment is substantial and if you choose to apply for this project you will need to ensure there is enough space to deliver sessions and store the turntables in school. Places are limited to six schools per year.

Taiko Rhythms Secondary

Defined by its dynamic playing style, Taiko involves choreographed movement which many identify with Japanese martial arts. It is noted that the principles of Taiko can help with developing respect for one's self, other players, and the instruments in order to bring about a discipline of both body and mind. Aimed at KS3, the programme consists of 10 x 45 minute lessons with a class size group, use of a set of Taiko drums for the duration of the project and teacher training for school based teachers. Places are limited. Sessions will take place on Tuesdays.
