SMARTS - Be a Part of It!

Inner Rhythm | Grades 4-6

The goal of this class is to develop proper technique on hand drums using light auxiliary percussion. Focus will be on bringing out students' musical abilities and expanding on them. Students will also work to create music in a group setting and learn to interact with their peers. These skills include listening, responding, improvisation, adapting, understanding music vocabulary, and working together. By the end of the class, students will be connected musically as a fully functioning rhythm circle.
