Every participant will have an instrument to play and during the workshop will have the chance to change their place to play another instrument.

The end of day performance option to the workshops has been developed by David over a number of years. Each session during the day is tailored towards a performance for parents, other children etc. The performance contains an African song, drumming and dance with the children dressed in African shirts and head bands.
