 World Music
   
World Music is an innovative approach to whole class music teaching. All young people can learn traditional music, on traditional instruments, in a cultural context. Our staff teach in both primary and post primary schools within the Education Authority and are experienced tutors in both traditional African drumming and Samba.
 
Instruments
Our World Music Department has a range of authentic instruments including practice and professional djembes; 3 full Samba kits; 2 sets of djuns; and various other instruments from around the world.
Examinations
World Music is an excellent vehicle for GCSE students to achieve at the highest levels in GCSE performance and ensemble skills. Tutors also cover much of the world music curriculum in their lessons.
 
Workshops
Every year the percussion department organises workshops held at the CBSM for students to get the opportunity to learn with the masters.
