Developing an African Drumming Program for Your Music Classroom
with Jeremy Cohen, Founder & Director of ThisWorldMusic
Date: Saturday, January 31, 2015
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Learn how to bring the joy and power of African drumming into your music classroom! This workshop explores precision drum, bell and rattle technique; recitation of onomatopoeic drum “vocables;” and the singing of traditional West African songs.
The various rhythms introduced range in difficulty, allowing you to differentiate instruction for your students. Classroom management issues and how to recruit, equip and schedule African drumming classes and ensembles in a K-12 setting are also discussed.
Open to Moravian students and Lehigh Valley K-12 teachers. For more info, email Dr. Joy Hirokawa: firstname.lastname@example.org
