|INTRODUCTION TO AFRICAN DRUMMING|
FALL SESSION 1 | Oct. 2-Oct. 30, 2014
Drumming together is a dynamic way of building children's confidence and self-esteem! In this course children will develop both of these skills while learning the basics of African drumming on the djembe. Children will learn basic rhythmic reading skills and basic musical terminology that will translate to any instrument. Because hand drumming is so fun and therapeutic, children will also develop many other life skills such as listening and focus, leadership, teamwork, vocal work through simple call and response songs, and creativity. Most importantly, children will have fun making music together.
