“These workshops have had a direct impact on the standard of playing we are hearing in band rehearsals, as students are clearly thinking more carefully about rhythm” - Music Teacher David D’Uva
In Music this term we have a focus on rhythm and groove, with the aim of improving the overall quality of our bands’ performances. As part of this focus we bought in renowned percussionist and drummer Freddy Poncin to deliver a series of workshops with our lower school students.
“It is great to support the Music Program at South Fremantle again and to see the students skills grow over the course of the workshops,” said Freddy.
Freddy used Djembes and other hand percussion to deliver intensive rhythm workshops to build students’ skills and general rhythmic awareness.
