Notes from the Primary Music Department – Andy Gleadhill Workshop

It is with great excitement that we will welcome internationally renowned World music Percussionist Andy Gleadhill to Bangkok Prep, as part of his 2019 World Tour “Around the World in 80 Drum Beats”. 

Andy has over 35 years of experience as a professional musician and educator, playing for live performances, West End show orchestras, and film and television. Andy has a fantastic reputation for his in-school world music workshops around the world. He was even acknowledged by Music Teacher Magazine as the “leading authority on teaching World Music”!

Andy will be running a full day of World Music Percussion workshops next Tuesday 17th September for Years 5 and 6, that will include instruction on how to play rhythmic styles of various music genres and styles such as Caribbean, African, Brazilian and Indonesian music. Students will experience a unique hands on approach to develop their percussion performance techniques on various drums and hand percussion instruments.  Andy will also visit our Secondary campus on Wednesday 18th September to run workshops for Secondary musicians.

We cannot wait to see our students in action learning and exploring first hand, the wonders of world music during this unique and inspiring music event!
