World music workshops

Group workshops on non-western instruments.

The Derby & Derbyshire Music Partnership has access to several sets of instruments from around the world. Schools can organise one-off experience workshops, or several sessions upon these instruments, delivered in-school or on-location.

There is the capacity to deliver most workshop sessions in schools, but some of the larger instrumental sets are permanently housed at venues across Derby and Derbyshire.

Instruments available

Workshops can be arranged on the following sets of world music:

  • Steel pans from the Caribbean
  • Taiko drumming from Japan
  • Gamelan from Indonesia
  • Djembe drumming from Africa
  • Samba band from Brazil
