“HIT IT” is our new percussion class, launched October 2017, specifically to teach percussion.
Classes are held every Thursday evening during term time from 6 – 7pm at the bands headquarters in Dewsbury Road, Elland. Children aged 7 to 12 years are welcome to come along and join the class. The class will introduce children to a range of different percussion instruments from drum kit to glockenspiel, and will focus on basic rhythms and different drum beats. At just £4 per class its a great opportunity for any budding percussionists to come along and learn.
“We are delighted to welcome Lauren as our percussion tutor. Lauren is a former member of our senior band, and has recently graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Percussion players are a key part of the band, and add so much colour and interest to our performances, providing opportunities for children to learn and have fun is essential to our organisation’s development. This grant will help to subsidise our costs, so we can make the class more affordable”, Secretary, Kathleen Harrison.
If you think your child would like to come along to the class please get in touch via our contacts page.
