We are excited to have Paul Corbiere join us for Drumming in the Elementary Music Classroom!
This is a hands on session – basic drumming skills will be explored, with participants reviewing proper tone techniques from a pedagogical approach. We will explore kid-friendly rhythm games and fun activities designed to help youngest elementary students with basic techniques, beat keeping skills, and stamina. In a step-by-step process, participants will practice combining more complex rhythms and different instruments to create ensemble pieces that introduce concepts such as form and improvisation. Ideas to modify these ensembles to the instrumentations they already have in their classrooms will also be examined.
All workshop will be held at Lake Whitney Elementary. Please follow this link for directions. https://goo.gl/maps/4m9f6EtdrWT2
