The 7th grade World Music Drummers are hard at work understanding the use of African Drums and putting together ensemble playing in 4 parts. This requires practice, cooperation and teamwork from the whole class. As we gather in our drum circles, we begin with "Call To Drum." The teacher plays a now- familiar pattern that "speaks" to the class. The class "answers" with a rehearsed rhythm. This sets the tone to work on the ensembles. You can listen to "Call To Drum" as performed and recorded by class 7B. I have edited it into a file that can be downloaded for a cell phone ring tone! Check it out! More recordings will be added as we go along. Keep up the good work, drummers! LINK TO--> 7th GRADE GM DRUMMING PROJECTS
