Junk Drumming Workshops

Posted by

In 2012 our team helped to put together the UK’s biggest recycled carnival performance ‘junk jam’ as part of the Manchester day Parade.  This award winning carnival presentation has helped to inform our ‘Junk’ and recycled music workshops for primary and secondary schools.  Using entirely recycled materials our junk music workshop use paint tins, giant barrels, tubs, shopping carts and just about anything else we can get our hands on to help build up a bank of sounds to create a recycled orchestra. This Junk Drumming section can also be accompanied by string instruments and blown instruments for young people who already play violin, brass or reed instruments. Our expert percussionists and musical directors will use this bank of sounds to help the workshop group create and new and exciting piece of music and demonstrate what can be achieved with recycled materials. Trough our networks of leading carnival artists we can also offer recycled carnival arts and costume making, dance and theatre around pre-designed themes to complement the music and animate the costume as well as instrument making sessions.
