About This Activity

The Lower School World Percussion program, under the direction of professional musician Shawn Hennessey, is a communal drumming experience that is both fun and educational for students, and for the GFS community as a whole. During each term, students in the fourth and fifth grades will be exposed to rhythms and techniques from Ghana, Cuba, Brazil and the Middle East, played on authentic drums. Djembes, Doumbeks, Congas, Surdos, and various bells and shakers are just some of the instruments that will be used. Specific activities will include polyrhythmic games, South Indian vocables, body percussion, drum language, and circle songs focusing on West African and Afro-Caribbean secular and spiritual songs. Singing while playing is encouraged, as is improvisation and dance. This program is sure to get hands grooving, blood pumping and bodies jumping! Axé! Interested students should talk to their lower school music teacher before enrolling.
