Get ready to start learnin’ about riddim, rhyme an’ readin’ wid Rastamouse & Da Easy Crew!
Currently designed for children aged 4-6; The Rastamouse Rocksteady Reggae school delivers elements of the Music National Curriculum in a variety of formats – from one day workshops through to a comprehensive ten-week programme incorporated into school timetables.
Developed with music practitioner Sally Greaves with the support of The Rastamouse Company, the team at EMI and the Triborough Music Hub of Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster City; the Rocksteady programme has been piloted and evaluated in a number of London schools since April 2012.
During Summer 2013 the Rastamouse Company is very pleased to be working with BBC Learning on a number of unique events to bring the Rocksteady Music Workshop to children all around the country. Musical workshops using ukuleles, bongos, egg shakers, wooden spoons, voice and movement provide structured activities to enable engagement at various levels and most importantly create a fun, energetic atmosphere. (Teachers, parents and carers be prepared to get involved too!)
