ABOUT OUR SCHOOL GROUP TEACHING SERVICE:
Our company provides a teaching service at schools in Cape Town. Each of our teachers is trained in the African Marimbas and has graduated from our Marimba Jam Teachers Training Course.
Schools are expected to provide their own marimbas and our teachers travel to and from the respective schools for each lesson. (If your school does not yet have marimbas, please contact us for alternative options or for our manufacturer’s details)
Each band has one lesson a week and schools can have more than one band. Schools are also responsible for organising performance opportunities for their bands, although we do invite all of the bands that we teach to our annual MARIMBA JAM FESTIVAL.
Marimbas are very popular in Cape Town and our school group option allows for great team building opportunities as well as exposure to the gift of music. Students in these groups are not expected to read music or to have played another musical instrument before. The focus of these groups is to create energetic and passionate marimba performances that truly demonstrate the vibrant atmosphere of African Music.
ABOUT OUR PRIVATE LESSONS
Our private lessons are for individual students. These are for anyone who wants a broader Marimba Tuition. These lessons are more focused on developing the technical skills of the learner and increasing their musical knowledge.
We work on a level system with these learners and have practical tests every two terms. These encourage the learners to work hard and achieve the goals of each level.
Most of our individual students are invited to join our Marimba Jam Learners Group after their first test. This allows our individual students to get the full African Marimba experience, whilst still being able to grow substantially as an individual marimba player.
We organise for a few performance opportunities for our private learners and groups throughout the year- including our annual MARIMBA JAM FESTIVAL which is the highlight of the year!
ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS:
Our Marimba Workshops run on request.
We offer a variety of workshops and team building sessions to meet your specific needs. Our workshops are facilitated by trained Marimba Jam Teachers who strive to create an energetic and fun environment.
We provide high-energy workshops for all age-groups. This is the perfect option if your
school wishes to have once-off marimba workshops to expose learners to the instrument, who do not necessarily wish to commit to a school band. Our trained Marimba Jam Teachers will come in to the school for up to 2hours per session. This is great for Grade 8 Orientation or team building for the Student Council. Schools are required to provide their own marimbas for these workshops.
