African percussion

In the beginning there was rhythm. Then melody. Then harmony.

When a child is learning how to play music, the best starting point is rhythm. And where better to learn about rhythm than in Africa! Greenwich Young Musicians teacher Laurence Hill has spent extensive time learning African percussion in Guinea, Ghana and Senegal and has vast knowledge and experience in this area.

On our course, children will learn African percussion using the specialised teaching techniques developed by Laurence inspired by his observation of traditional African learning methods.

African percussion provides a direct route into music making due to its accessibility and will be used to develop your child’s fledgling musicality. A strong rhythmic pulse creates a strong foundation for musical learning.
