Description of Services

Just Add Rhythm! presents Drumming for Everyone:
Let’s go on a rhythmic journey that will have everyone smiling, drumming, and moving to the music!

In this 45-minute interactive program, participants will be introduced to various drums and percussion instruments from around the world, and will learn to play rhythms together as a group. The objective is to encourage teamwork and build self-confidence, while inviting participants to discover how music making can create lasting physical, mental and emotional benefits. This program can be utilized for all ages and abilities, including teacher trainings and in-service, administrative trainings, and school festivals/events, in addition to in-school workshops.

We achieve this goal through hands-on drumming, singing, body percussion/rhythmic clapping, and movement. Participants will experience personal benefits through these methods as well as group achievements.

Each individual’s abilities are different, but in general, progress is indicated through group cohesion: a) playing rhythms together; b) encouraging one another through verbal and nonverbal cues; and c) the sharing of one another’s experiences after each session. The progress also continues outside of the drumming sessions, as participants are encouraged to apply these skills to other areas of their lives.

Single workshops are assessed by the verbal sharing of feelings, experiences, and comprehension at the workshop’s conclusion. For school residencies, a brief age-appropriate written assessment is administered to participants at the end of the residency, which includes questions on how they felt before, during, and after the drumming program. For both single workshops and residencies, a study guide is sent home to parents of school-age participants to continue the learning at home.

Just Add Rhythm! presents Jungle Drums! Story Corner Workshop:
We have all at one point made a wish that we could do or be something new and amazing. In Jungle Drums by Graeme Base, little warthog Ngiri Mdogo makes a wish with surprising consequences! Join drummer/dancer Alisha as she leads everyone on a special rhythmic quest to discover what truly makes each one of us unique.

In this 45-minute interactive story corner, participants ages PreK-1st grade will be introduced to rhythm making and life on the African savannah through a reading of the book Jungle Drums by Graeme Base. This interdisciplinary workshop focuses on music making, listening and speaking skills, and story interpretation in order to share the theme that we are all unique.

We achieve this goal through reading the story Jungle Drums and accompanying it with hands-on drumming and instrument play, singing, body percussion/rhythmic clapping, and movement. Participants will experience personal benefits through these methods as well as group achievements.

Each individual’s abilities are different, but in general, progress is indicated through group cohesion: a) playing rhythms together; b) encouraging one another through verbal and nonverbal cues; c) demonstrating an understanding of the book’s theme through group discussion and activities; and d) the sharing of one another’s experiences after each session. The progress also continues outside of the drumming sessions, as participants are encouraged to apply these skills to other areas of their lives, and teachers are encouraged to continue utilizing musical methods as part of classroom activities.

A brief age-appropriate written/oral assessment is administered to participants after each session, which includes questions on how they felt before, during, and after the drumming program. School teachers will also be given take-home study guides to introduce parents to what was learned in the workshop.

Grade Level:

Pre-K – 1st

Number of Participants:

Min. 5 – Max. 35

Duration:

One 45-minute workshop or mini residency of three 45-minute sessions
