The Marimba Education Development Centre
In collaboration with The Marimba Education Development Centre every year, marimba players from different schools gather for GIAMARI Marimba camps. The camps run for a minimum of 3 days in different parts of the country over the years. One of the camp sites was the magnificent Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
These marimba camps have proved to be an essential activity for integrating diverse skills and a social networking facility for Marimba players in different countries. Participants continue to pour in from different countries to enjoy our camps.
GIAMARI Marimba Camp programs are diversified to meet different tastes depending on the theme of the year. The main areas of Marimba Education are; Marimba Dexterity, Marimba Phrasing, Compositional Skills, Listening & Analysis, Stage Management, Repertoire Preparation, Stage Behaviour, Practice Management among others. This is all based on the GIAMARI Marimba Syllabus; The Foundation Course in Marimba Education. In addition, students benefit immensely as they are counselled on a wide spectrum of tropical issues affecting their lives as growing children. These include but not limited to Drug & Substance Abuse, Defensive Driving, Sex Education including Self-Discipline, Stress Management, Peer Pressure Management, Rules of Politeness, The Sense of Decorum, Protocol and Etiquette.
Alternatively, institutions can request GIAMARI experts to camp in their institutions through a special arrangement.
We have created a long-standing relationship with many schools in Germany, England, and Sweden among many other countries around the world. Many of our students have interacted with counterparts in Europe in real classroom situations. This has provided an opportunity for our students to interface with fellow students of diverse race and culture.
