Unity Through Music
Today was the last rehearsal for the third grade D.R.U.M. Code ensemble and students are eager for their performance on Friday. Guest Musician Darren Gilley led the students through a variety of rhythms, many that included call and response. The robust sound of the students’ drumming filled the music room and looks of concentration as well as a few smiles could be found on faces throughout the room. In an interview with a few more third grade students today, I heard about the unity and togetherness that the D.R.U.M Code encourages as well as the importance of respect. Students shared their favorite parts of the experience drumming. Take a listen in the videos below. Good luck third graders!
