I am teaching African music after xmas and, having never taught this before, am a bit at a loss as to where to start. They have to cover the following in the unit: Master drummer Culture and role of music in African society Rhythm cycles CAll and response Now, whilst I understand things like rhythm cycles and call and response, I am struggling with find simple African pieces they could perform that reflect these. I am also looking for an interesting way to introduce all the info about culture and society other than worksheets/powerpoints. Finally what is the master drummer?? Any hints/tips on teaching this or resources you could share would be great. I have about 6 or 8 djembes and an African xylophone to work with.
