The Ritmi-Ka project (updated with photos from Wednesday 25th)

Our school is taking part in the Ritmi-Ka project, an initiative intended to provide the opportunity to produce music to everyone, even those who have never been to a music lesson before.

The second session

In this session Mr Groen talked our students through the building of a beat, from 4 simple downbeats to a more swinging beat. Timekeeping is an integral part of any musician’s skillset, after all!

The first session

In the first lesson our school was visited by André Groen, a Dutch teacher and musician, who directed our students in the first few bars of the famous Tito Puente song, “Oye Como Va”, later popularised by Santana.
