ASA Drumming

By Ariel Arsac-Ellison

Our ASA World Hand Drumming participants are actively engaging in the rhythmic musicality of percussion instruments!  In addition to learning a few world music rhythms (specific to djembes and other world drums), they especially enjoy creating their own music … using syllables of their names (and the names of family members), favorite foods and animals to create rhythm patterns; exploring the different sounds and tones each instrument can make;  and writing their own Boomwhacker music!
