World Music Drumming Summer Workshops

Last summer, I was fortunate enough to attend three World Music Drumming workshops to help prepare me for the start-up of our JAMM program.  I attended
  1. Pittsburgh, PA:  Drumming Up the Fun! (ages 3 - 8) with Melissa Blum 
  2. Oconomowoc, WI:  Kids, Choir and Drums Mix It Up with Lynn Brinckmeyer
  3. Portland, OR:  Level II Drumming with Kofi Gbolonyo
Each workshop gave me a slew of ideas and practical applications that I could use immediately in the classroom for ages 5 and up.  Drumming, dance and song are a part of every workshop, and Will Schmid and his staff make learning at any level accessible and fun.  The video posted above includes highlights from all of the workshops that World Music Drumming offers, including Marimba.  Click on this link to download World Music Drumming Summer Workshops 2011.

Thank you, Will Schmid and the entire teaching staff at World Music Drumming, for providing such a rich music curriculum!
