DRUM CYLINDER COMMENTS
I have great praise for Chris’ Drum Cylinder Program. Chris has brought his program into my class for the past two years. He immediately ingratiated himself to my second graders with his warmth and enthusiasm.
Every aspect of the program was infused with academic importance and relevance. The children were active participants in following Chris’s clear and structured directions.
The class was led through a variety of activities that quickly engaged them in the exploration of Rhythm. Through Chris’s gentle nature, I witnessed the captivation of interest and imagination of every child in my class. The end of the lesson transformed my classroom transformed into a “Drumming Village”.
The Drum Cylinder Program was one of the highlights of our school year and one that every child will remember.
I was so inspired I continued using Chris’s methodology to incorporate this form of music in my classroom for the rest of the year.
