The Benefits of CMA.
It is a proven fact that exposure to and participation in musical activities greatly benefits the development of a child. It is well known that babies can hear and respond to sound and music in the womb. From birth onwards CMA is able to take children on the great adventure that is the world of music. Not only is this adventure fun, engaging, emotive and exciting it also offers a whole range of benefits for each and every child. Whether as a one off workshop or a more regular activity, interaction with music aids a child's development both physiologically and psychologically in the following areas
Development of imagination
Improvement in Social Skills and team work
Healthy development between children and their caregivers
Development of literacy skills
Development of self esteem and self confidence
Development of communication skills, both speaking and listening,
Development of concentration and creative thinking.
Sample Samba Workshop
Generally the workshop runs for approximately one hour
Performance / demo by workshop leader and fellow performers on percussion instruments (. This performance will always be tailored to the workshop theme)
A mixture of clapping and rhythm games. Teaching the students the different common rhythms of samba, and also various 'calls' that form the piece.
Each student then is handed an instrument and the workshop class is usually split into four groups. Shakers, cowbells, claves and drums. The workshop leader then teaches the correct playing style for each instrument and each rhythm.
Then with instruments we use the previously taught rhythms and calls from the warm up and create our own samba inspired piece of music. Depending on age and ability this can be as difficult or easy as needed, but there is always a full piece to perform by the end of the workshop, either just to themselves, the next class coming in or in an assembly to the whole school .
By the end of the workshop every individual will have taken part , teachers and children with their own instrument. In just one hour everyone will have learnt the whole samba style piece by heart, ready for a final performance.
It is always such a fantastic experience to see the team work and enjoyment of the participants .
