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)


Warm up

A mixture of clapping and rhythm games. Teaching the students, the different common rhythms of samba, and 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 warmup 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 teamwork and enjoyment of the participants.
