Trouvère are specialists in lively historical presentation, combining music, roleplay and fun. We have over ten years experience of working with schools and we know how to work with teachers to deliver fun and high quality educational experiences.
We are currently working on a reissue of our popular schools guide to Tudor dance and we are raising funds for this through kickstarter. In effect you can pre–order this resource by backing the project. In doing so, you will help us get this amazing new resource out to schools all over the country. And especially for schools based some distance from us, our kickstarter also offers the chance to book Trouvère to come to your school at a bargain price! Click here to find out more.
You can book Trouvère for a visit to your school – we offer Tudor, medieval and Viking period workshops – and all our sessions include a strong musical element as a ‘way in’ to the various periods.
You can also take advantage of our unique educational resources to add to your classroom work. We’ve our guide to ‘Medieval and Tudor Dance’, and ‘How to Be a Tudor’ – the comprehensive guide to organising a Tudor day. You can buy both of these together along with our CD ‘Music for a Tudor Feast’, as our ‘Ultimate Tudor Bundle’. We also offer a free downloadable Tudor dance (including full length MP3 and the steps), ready for immediate use in the classroom.
We’ve also got stacks of background information on historical musical instruments with lots of images and listenable MP3s to help you and your class get a good impression of medieval and Tudor music.
