Students love music when it's a hands on experience. Picking up a drum and learning play rhythm patterns with your friends is fun and engaging. It helps to create an atmosphere of community and belonging in the music classroom. I've taught drumming circle for many years in my previous schools and have seen how children of all abilities have been successful. It allows for creativity with improvisation as well as learning to read notes rhythm values. I would love to bring this experience of hands on musical training to my new school. Providing these basic tools for my students would be the first step in creating a fun, meaningful music education.
