In this week’s classroom spotlight, we caught up with Mrs. Zebell to learn about the drumming in her creative arts classes. The drumming unit is a chance for kids to take what they’ve learned about the relationship between notes and put it into practice. So we learn the different note values how much they’re worth. We practice them within the framework of a rhythm pyramid. We Practice language based rhythms and then we slowly work ourselves into writing, Arranging and then performing our own drum ensembles. Students learn these things from this activity There’s all different types of like ways to like hit the drum and like in the middle and on the outside like the rim. It impacted me on like learning how to do a drum and like just having a good time with it. I hope that they will believe that they are truly musical. That maybe something in their past made them think that they didn’t have talent and I believe that everybody does. This has been Grant and Dante reporting for Trojan TV.
