In most rhythmacultures around the planet, rhythm, song, and dance are entwined in the special occasions around which communities gather. Greg has assembled a selection of his favorite songs and chants that highlight these sentiments. Everyone can sing and tap along to the best of their abilities while Greg leads. Greg uses soft-sound drums to help with sensory overload and is willing to discuss other adaptations or alternate instrumentation.
NOTE: DRUM FOR CHANGE IS NOT A PERFORMANCE ENSEMBLE. The artist brings real instruments for every student. Class sizes are limited to 12 students and 25 total participants so that EVERYONE has the opportunity to make music TOGETHER. A PLANNING MEETING IS REQUIRED upon booking this program.
