Ididgeridoo provides educational aboriginal didgeridoo music workshops for schools throughout the UK, and has been doing so for a number of years, covering all Key Stages from Primary through to Secondary education, including special provisions and PRU's.
"Matt has been leading didgeridoo workshops at our school for the last 3 years and each one has been an extremely entertaining and enjoyable experience for the children. Matt provides a comprehensive, hands-on experience of the didgeridoo, from the instrument’s history and how it is made, through to playing in a group performance. We’ll certainly be booking in again for next year and would thoroughly recommend his workshops to other schools!"
Katie Leedham, Battling Brook Primary School, Leicester.
Over time and building on his experience, Matt Willems (aka Copperman), through Ididgeridoo, has developed didge workshops for schools to make them not only as educational and constructive as possible but above all else fun!
Workshops are fully interactive and rely on audience participation - including learning to play the didgeridoo. Every session is tailored for that particular workshop so the content can be amended to reflect the needs of the pupils, for example, to tie in with an ongoing project.
"Matthew did an excellent job when he led a workshop at our school. The day was fun, full of enthusiasm and at an appropriate level for each year group. Matthew involved all the children in the day and gave everyone a hands on experience of the didgeridoo. Matthew would most certainly be welcome at our school in the future."
Arzu Gabb, Liphook Infant School.
Materials for Didgeridoo Workshops
Plastic didgeridoos are supplied for every pupil in a workshop, along with any other items required or needed as agreed (for example clapsticks etc.)
Guidance Notes for Didgeridoo Workshops
Workshop content is adjusted to accommodate the age and abilities of pupils. If you have children with special needs, please make us aware so that we can adapt the workshop accordingly.
To ensure a productive workshop we generally recommend groups have no more than 30 pupils. With larger groups, more space is required as each pupil will have their own didgeridoo!
