WORKSHOPS FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN
'Samia’s love of Indian music and her ability, not only to bring it right up to date but also make it accessible, inspires children to immerse themselves in the richness one of the world’s great and ancient cultures’ Gordon Philips, Director of Norfolk Our World Festivals
Samia’s primary workshops are suitable from ages 4 to 12 and are based on Classical Indian Music and Songs. Activities include exploring Indian instruments, such as the tanpura, harmonium and tabla, working with simple and extended vocal exercises based on Raag (scale) and Taal (rhythm) as well as learning Classical and Bollywood songs.
Thank you so much for coming to our school to work with the children. Your calm and affirming manner with the children really helped them to understand your culture and heritage. You worked really inclusively with them thoroughly involving them in the activities that you had planned. Your work was totally appropriate for all ages in our school from Nursery through to Year 2.

Samia’s popular and accessible workshops are linked to the National Curriculum and support schools to fulfil both Ofsted’s SMSC requirements and Global Learning objectives. For each full day of workshops, Samia will provide resources to ensure the sessions can be embedded within the curriculum.
