Week 4: Percussion workshop

Programs for this blog post

Spanish Language & Culture

Yesterday, the students enjoyed a really fun activity: a percussion workshop! The class started with the teacher sowhing them some basic rhythms and warming up, getting to know the fundamentals of percussion.

Afterwards, they got to play some instruments! From drums to claves, bells and even two cajones flamencos, the students could choose the instrument they prefered. After getting the hang of it, they started playing the characteristic rhythm from their choosen instrument, joining all of them and playing a challenging but nice flamenco tempo. The instructor explained to them a bit of theory about it and when it is used, giving them some context.

It was a very entertaining activity which allow them to learn more about the musical culture in Seville and also participate in it.
