Drumming Workshop at Collinwood Village Academy Drumming Workshop
Drumming Workshop at Collinwood Village Academy
The fifth and sixth grade students at Collinwood Village Academy celebrated Martin Luther King week by participating in a drumming workshop on Thursday, January 21st and Friday, January, 22nd. Baba Jubal Harris, a professional drummer and music educator, taught them how to make their own drums and ten basic rhythms.
On Thursday, they made square drums by decorating wooden frames and wrapping clear plastic tape around the frame twice. On Friday, they learned various rhythms and movements. Staff members will prepare some of the students to perform at the school’s Cultural Arts Festival in February.
This workshop was made possible by a grant from Neighborhood Connections in association with the Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. Collinwood Neighborhood Catholic Ministries was instrumental in obtaining these funds.
