Travelling by Tuba— Workshop Day

Travelling by Tuba— Workshop Day
 

A Workshop Day

A show followed by workshops throughout the day.

In a Workshop Day, Travelling by Tuba are resident in a school for a whole day. Following a performance of one of Travelling by Tuba’s three award-winning shows, the day is then divided into workshop sessions.

Each workshop can cater for up to 35 children and are tailored to suit all ages from Nursery up to Keystage 3. The duration of each session can vary from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the schools requirements. Workshop Days are flexible and cater for each schools individual demands.

Themes for the workshops include:

Brazilian Samba: Using a Brazilian Surdo Drum and specially learnt rhythms with hand percussion.

Mexican Salsa: An infectious Latin American dance rhythm.

Hand Chimes: Play an array of tunes with Suzuki Tone Chimes (Similar to Hand Bells).

New Orleans Jazz: ¬†Sousaphone and hand percussion in a swingin’ style.

Spanish Tango: Feel the laid-back, hypnotic Spanish beat.

Workshop Days are a chance for as many children as possible to experience music making. Every child plays an instrument and sees how a piece of music is rehearsed and put together. Each session culminates in a performance, which includes all the children plus Stewart and Chris.

Workshop Days are a real hands-on musical experience.

Travelling by Tuba— Workshop & Performance Day

Travelling by Tuba—  Workshop and Performance Day
 

A Performance Day

A show, workshops and a special after school or evening performance for parents and friends.

In a Performance Day, Travelling by Tuba are resident in one school for a whole day. The day culminates in a 60-minute performance by large groups of children with Chris and Stewart. Each group performs a different piece of music learnt during the day in a concert for parents, grandparents and friends.

Following a performance of one of Travelling by Tuba’s three award-winning shows, the day is divided into workshop sessions. Each workshop creates a different piece of music for performance by the children either directly after school or in the evening— whichever¬† best suits the school.

Themes for the workshops include:

1. Brazilian Samba: Using a Brazilian Surdo Drum and specially learnt rhythms with hand percussion.

2. Football Fugue: A fugue based on football club names.

3. Hand Chimes: Play an array of tunes with Suzuki Tone Chimes (Similar to Hand Bells).

4. New Orleans Jazz: ¬†Sousaphone and hand percussion in a swingin’ style.

5. Boom ta ta Boom: A specially learnt song with actions for children and audience!

6. The Six Days of Music Lessons: Based on The Twelve Days of Christmas.

7. Mexican Salsa: An infectious Latin American dance rhythm.

8. Spanish Tango: Feel the laid-back, hypnotic Spanish beat.

In addition, many schools like to learn a song from Travelling by Tuba’s children’s operetta “The Tuba Has Landed”. A rehearsal CD and music are sent out in advance and the song is rehearsed with tuba and piano on the day. School ensembles can also take a spot in the concert and we will always do our best to meet any themed requests. Special Christmas performances are also possible.

Each day is individually designed to suit each schools needs and abilities. The workshop sessions can be tailored for Keystage 1 or 2 as required. On average, approximately 120 children are involved in the evening performance.
