One World Music

New Program Residency Workshop English

Alicia will begin by sharing her South American cultural background and show students some unique musical instruments from around the world. She will lead them in movement games including using the body as a percussive instrument and engage them in ‘call and response’ exercises. Students will have the opportunity to play various percussion instruments (bamboo drums, shakers, guiros, cowbell, tambourines, claves or sticks and hand drums) and follow specific rhythms to accompany a simple song. They will exchange instruments so they can explore the different ways they are played and the different sounds they produce.
