Body Percussion with Literacy workshops are a fun, creative approach to literacy based on our work with Pie Corbett.

Using either set texts or children’s own written work, the workshop explores the rhythmic elements of the text. Together, we discuss pulse, emotion and how the words flow when spoken out loud.

We then take these creative decision and apply them to body percussion, providing a new kinaesthetic creative route that allows for simultaneous development of literacy & musical skills.

This session is let by Beat goes on-director Olli Tunmer. Ollie is the founder and Director of Beat Goes On. He is a former cast member of the hit show STOMP and its sister show, ‘The Lost & Found Orchestra’. He is also a qualified secondary music teacher and combines these experiences to deliver what he hopes are fun, engaging and memorable workshops.

This workshop is aimed at teachers and music teachers of all year groups.
