Junior Jam: Junk Percussion

Go Back

Event Highlight

Junior Jam – our jam-packed music sessions for 4-8 year olds – returns for the summer!

With an exciting theme each month – from Junk Percussion to African Voices – help your little ones develop their musical skills in a fun, friendly and accessible way.

On Sat 27 Apr, make music out of rubbish – dig deep into your recycling so we can make a junk percussion orchestra together! Led by Kabantu.

(Participants should ideally bring one or two small things they could use as a basis for their instrument – a juice carton, empty cereal box or plastic bottle would be perfect!)

Sessions are free and take place at the Children’s Library at Manchester Central Library. Places are limited (20 children per session) so sign up in advance to secure your spot.

Two 50-minute sessions will take place at 10am and 11am.

All instruments are provided.
