Ten Pieces at Home Showcase

Learning Cuban rhythms with Stephen Whibley from the BBC Concert Orchestra...

Take a look at some wonderful work made by children across the UK whilst they stay at home.

In week eight's activity percussionist Stephen Whibley showed you how to play Cuban rhythms, how to create a kitchen percussion section and how to perform along to the lively Mambo from 'West Side Story'.

Join BBC Concert Orchestra percussionist Stephen Whibley as he shows you how to create a Cuban Mambo in your kitchen!

Here are your creative responses...

It is this week’s activity. I really enjoyed everything, especially playing the cups. My inspiration was Mambo from West Side Story.

"Cuban Mambo was set as a task for a Music Lesson from school this week"
"We listened to the Mambo lesson and learnt the rhythms using kitchen and home appliances. From there we decided to make our own percussion and perform. This is Angus on his homemade drum kit."
