The World Music/Percussion residency will explore Latin drumming as well as the drums and rhythms from other places in the world including the Middle East, Africa and the USA. Since all drumming and rhythm are related to each other, students will explore a mixture of instruments and rhythms for creative and fun musical experiments! World Music/Percussion includes storytelling and cultural learning which will help students to understand better how to work in groups while respecting each other’s individualities within a culturally responsive approach.

As a result of participation in the program students will be observed to have:

  • augmented artistic skill proficiency in playing a variety of basic hand percussion instruments
  • deeper understanding of subject specific knowledge (cultural context, key vocabulary and terminology).
  • enhanced social/non-cognitive skills such as self-confidence, collaboration and perseverance.
  • discovered and revealed talents and affinities.

Program available in person, or live online.
