About:

African, Indian, Chinese, Samba, Olympics, World, Christmas and Recycled Sounds Music Workshops MED Music provides a first class service to schools in Hampshire, Surrey, London, Sussex and Kent.

We deliver a rich cultural experience where children from an early age can enjoy, play and perform music.  We are committed to music education and assist schools in delivering the National Curriculum and elements of the Government’s national plan for music launched in November 2011.

It is often said that in just one day we cover so many areas of the whole school curriculum. In our music workshops the children are the musicians, ‘learning through doing’ on the most fabulous collection of authentic instruments.

They receive a unique experience, acquiring an understanding for different cultural traditions. In so doing the children gain a respect for their own culture and that of others, plus an interest and curiosity for cultural diversity. It is now widely acknowledged that music can have a positive effect on so many aspects of a child’s education as well as being a source of great pleasure.

So Head Teachers give your school a special gift. We offer a range of highly educational workshops. African Workshops MED Music delivers an educational African Workshop where children enjoy, play and perform music on a range of authentic African instruments.

MED Music delivers a unique cultural experience with its Chinese Workshop. Chinese culture goes back to ancient times and this is where we take the children. They will be fascinated to hear the myth of the Nian, a dangerous beast who comes out of hiding every spring around the time of the Chinese New Year to attack people in a village, with a preference for ‘tasty’ children. However the evil beast fears loud noises so the villagers and children are safe if they, hit drums, plates and bowls to frighten him away.

This is a stunning workshop where the children themselves recreate the ancient legend, perform on Chinese drums, gongs and cymbals, operate two fifteen metre long dragons, dress up in a lion costume and perform a ribbon dance, all to frighten away the Nian. 

Three one hour sessions are usually slotted into a day plus a presentation/assembly. We can cater for a maximum of eighty pupils in each session for this Chinese Workshop.
