I am a primary school teacher on a mission to learn how to teach music. I have no specialist skills. Just enthusiasm.

Samba drumming for year 4
We had a great samba workshop on Friday courtesy of Merton Music Foundation's "Wider Opportunities" program. The marvellous Mags enthralled pupils with tales of slavery, rebellion and powerful rhythms. I am in the process of creating a powerpoint about the history of Samba which i will put up soon. In the meanwhile here is a clip from the BBC showing a young lad in Rio de Janeiro attending samba school. Follow 12 year old Jonas by clicking here
