On Sunday 12th January, the Love Music Trust Percussion Day was held at Sandbach School. The day offered a mixture of open rehearsals and workshops, with a programme spanning a wide range of genres and styles.
The day began with a hands on workshop from the Birmingham Conservatoire’s Percussion Department. This was followed by talk from Chris Bradley Principal Percussionist Opera North, who spoke about Percussion in the Opera House. It was a interested session and the students all learnt a lot.
After a break for lunch, there was a Hands on Egyptian Tablet Workshop led by Guy Schalom all students enjoyed playing Darabous and Djembes and learning the different Egyptian rhythms.
The day ended with a concert attended by friends and family, in which participants could perform the pieces they had learnt during the day.
It was a fantastic day, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. A big thank you to all who attended, with particular thanks to Acoustic Percussion (sponsor of the LMT Percussion Ensemble),
