World Music From The Brit School

Description

Teachers at the Brit School for Performing Arts and Technology in Croydon, which boasts a long list of famous alumni such as Katie Melua, Amy Winehouse, the Kooks and Adele, look to spread world music into the classroom.

Conor Doherty teaches the intricacies of ethnomusicology, and has a life-long passion for world-music fuelled by his years studying in Pakistan. His mission is to stimulate a young music teacher from St George's School in Harpenden.

Classically trained, Lisa Hampson is keen to include world music into her new schemes of work for Key Stage 3 but has no idea where to start. Can some hardcore drumming action help her lose her musical inhibitions and find her world music groove?
