Horniman Museum and Gardens’ Musical Instruments around the World Workshop
Explore the sounds, uses and the materials used in the manufacture of percussion instruments from around the world in this interactive hands-on workshop.
Play a talking drum from Ghana and learn how to change its pitch, feel the air vibrate inside a Turkish doumbek, and explore world instruments made of unusual and recycled materials.
Discover instruments that create the sounds of a rainforest and use them to create a soundscape with your classmates whilst following a conductor.
As part of the workshop, your class will have exclusive access to the Hands On Music Space which features a wide range of world instruments.
