Middle School students take a turn on the drums.
David Cox of Rhythm Path brought a Day of Drumming to the Lakehill students and faculty on Feb. 27. Throughout the day, all classes had the opportunity to sit in a drum circle and learn about the culture of West Africa along with some drumming techniques. Every student played a drum and learned about the countries in West Africa, including their music and cultures, and how drums are used to communicate. Drumming not only relieves stress and stimulates the brain to think on a more creative level, it also teaches cross-cultural skills, expression, and creative skills.
