Join Peter from Hume Conservatorium to learn body percussion that you can create anywhere. Get a couple of friends together and see what the beats sound like as a group. Your body is the instrument! Body percussion is a fantastic way to warm up and a useful tool for creating music on your own or in a group. Body percussion can help you learn musical concepts such rhythm, beat and tempo. 

Look our for part 2 coming soon where we explore making beats with things you will find in your kitchen. 

Things you need:

  • Paper
  • Pen or Pencil
  • Post it notes (or paper pieces and blu-tak).
