Young Person’s Guide to Percussion

 

Young audiences around the world are familiar with Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, but wonderful as this piece is, it doesn’t give much room to one of the most varied and dynamic sections of the orchestra, the percussion. We aimed to set this right with a coulourful show incorporating percussion from all over the globe.

Brilliant event children totally enthused got drum kit out at home and successfully making good music – although lessons wouldn’t go amiss – all other events are a must so PLEASE let us know when anything is scheduled.”

It was a wonderful hour with both children totally absorbed in the event. Both inspired to come home and practice on their drums all that they had learned.”

Just a big thank you to all concerned with this afternoon’s concert – a huge success: children’s feedback includes “1000 out of 10″ from an autistic 9 year old!”
