We partner with several Music Education Hubs to deliver First Access Programmes with all ages of children in Key Stage 2. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss how we could deliver some First Access Programmes with your school or Music Education Hub.


We offer the following First Access Programmes:

  • West African Drumming
  • Brazilian Samba Drumming
  • Indian Dhol Drumming
  • Caribbean Steel Pans
  • Indonesian Gamelan

The following length of programme can be selected

  • 3-Term Programme (x30 weekly facilitator visits)
  • 1/2-Term Programme (x5 weekly facilitator visits)
  • 1-Term Programme (x10 weekly facilitator visits)
  • 15-Week Programme (x15 weekly facilitator visits)

For all programmes, each class should receive a 45-minute to 1-hour session each week. The sessions should take place in a hall or large classroom (big enough to fit 30-chairs in a horse shoe) on the ground floor. Our facilitator will need access to the room 45 minutes prior to the first session and 45 minutes after the last session each day to set up and pack away.


Arts Award Discover & Explore

Our African drumming and Brazilian samba drumming First Access Programmes (minimum 1 term) include the option of The Arts Award Discover qualification for all participating children. All our Facilitators are Arts Award Advisers.
