My students need a soul cajon drum for exposure to different types of hand drumming instruments, as well as exposure to the history and culture associated with a particular drum.
..."Drums all have their own particulars - each drum has a place where they sound the best - where they ring out and resonate the best..." Chat Smith. That quote rings true, not only for the unique sound each drum has, but also for the uniqueness of each student playing those drums have… diversity
My students are fantastic!!!
They are always enthusiastic about drumming and willing to learn new ideas. I have a very diverse group of students both socially and culturally, and that is to be expected in California. My students range from grades K-5 and my typical school week consist of teaching hand drumming and percussion in an Orff methodized curriculum for my students grades k-2 and teaching my students grades 3-5 by method of oral traditions, as drums have been taught for centuries. In a typical week, I teach upwards of 184 students.
The ability to play drums is in our genes. Human beings have been drumming for millions of years, so trust in what your body can do. Drumming is an activity all ages can both enjoy and share. You don’t have to be a genius or a prodigy to enjoy playing drums. I believe that allowing people, especially children, to play drums helps them to discover potential that comes unbidden from the spirit rather than deliberately from the brain.
While music making in general emphasizes performance, group drumming does not; it is largely communal, so that in just minutes, people with diverse backgrounds, experiences and abilities join together and achieve immediate success.
I would like my students to be exposed to all types of hand drums, from both different cultures and different music genres. My hope is to help build a sense of community and tolerance by exposing my students to hand drums of different cultures.Read More
