Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

These books will service our elementary school students across the entire school district. While taking an immersive dive into the power of Japanese Taiko drumming, students will also learn the history and musical applications of percussion music from Japan.

Through a world lens, students will draw parallels to their learning of traditional American percussive styles while acquiring the knowledge to expand their learning of percussion techniques from many cultures throughout the world.

Our students and teachers have learned about percussion music from The Philippines, Northern and Southern India, and Trinidad. We are looking forward to expanding our education as we incorporate the music of Japan.
