Norfolk Music Hub is offering free fun and exciting music workshops online, for children across Norfolk to be creative and explore their musical abilities during half term
The free workshops offer children and young people the chance to learn to sing and sign their favourite songs, use digital devices to create beats and loops, and there’s even a beatboxing workshop for those who want to try something new.
Krista Ribbons, Area manager for Norfolk Music Hub, said “Our February half term workshops are a great opportunity for children across Norfolk to try something new and get involved with music wherever you are.
