Drums are a way to connect our students to all styles of music and culture. From the pounding bass drums of Queen, to the Celtic bodhran drums of Ireland and Scotland, and even the up turned metal mixing bowls played with wooden spoons on the kitchen floor, we can all connect to the pulse of a beating drum. It beats in our very core and children are no exception. I only have 12 hand drums of various sizes for my music classes. These classes range in size from three 4-year-olds to twenty-six 5th graders. While my students are understanding and know that we have to share, having two students share a 6 inch drum is difficult no matter how small your hands are! We use drumming in so many different ways. For the smallest feet, we use the drum to keep the steady beat. For the busiest hands, we learn rhythms of our favorite songs. For the most inquisitive minds, we improvise and create our own rhythmic pieces. Drums are crucial in any music classroom. They inspire a love of rhythm and creation. Please help the students of Jeter-Watson Intermediate and Edgemont Primary Schools gain high quality drums that will last for the next generations.
