NEC Summer Session 2014
ThisWorldMusic Founder/Director Jeremy Cohen, brings his African drumming class to the 77 Arts Academy in Acton this summer! Students are engaged with the sights and sounds of Africa! This week-long, hands-on drumming workshop, brings the joy and power of African drumming and culture to Acton! We welcome ages 10 to 18 at all proficiency levels.
- Precision drum, bell and shaker technique for a round, full ensemble sound
- Recitation of “drum language” using spoken syllables that help improve language skills and develop aural memory
- Stepping and sticking exercises that use full-body kinesthetic learning to develop off-beat timing and greater comfort with polyrhythms
- Traditional Ewe songs from Ghana that help students connect with a different culture through its native language
- Integration with core curriculum that uses music, dance and multimedia presentations to help bring other curricular areas to life
