Music 5: Specdrum–Learning About Culture Through Drumming
Learning about diverse cultures through music, specifically drumming, is what SpecDrum is all about. SpecDrum is a not-for-profit organization offering free, cultural education through drumming as an enrichment to the current school curriculum–a continual study of world culture through music, year round, not just a once a year presentation in the school gymnasium. The Kranzberg Arts Foundation is supporting this endeavor by offering a space for practice and performance in the new .ZACH Performing Arts Incubator and the Kranzberg Arts Center. Could such an approach help teach cultural awareness in your school?
