Inspired by the new Maton: Australia’s Guitar exhibition, young percussionists can explore how to create music using rhythm and drums, with drummer Jared Underwood.
For ages 8-10 years, participants don’t need any special equipment; they can drum using the floor, their body, or even a bucket or pot. Drumsticks are welcome if you have them, if not two wooden spoons will do too!
Participants will see highlights from the Maton: Australia’s Guitar exhibition, which features 130 guitars traversing through genres such as Country and Western, Folk and Classical, Rock and Roll, and Jazz.
Jared Underwood is an award-winning composer and musician. He graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music as a classical percussionist and AFTRS as a screen music composer. He is also creatively engaged in a wide variety of musical and artistic collaborations with filmmakers, advertising agencies, production companies, game developers, fashion designers, artists, contemporary dancers, bands, and musicians.
