Instrument suppliers have been responding to the growth in developmental and community music by including the introduction of new products suited for group drumming and music. Facilitators like myself have explored different ways of reaching out to students of all ages in making music, social development, and therapeutic drumming.

The last few years have been a very odd kind of time but also, looking at our world from a different perspective I find I have discovered more about the “rhythms of life” and have been working more with the dynamics of music.

My grandson played a video game song he likes but it is a sad song.  He said “I don’t know why but this song makes me feel very sad”.  I said “the songwriter wanted you to feel what he feels so it is a good song if you felt what the songwriter wanted to express to you.”  That is the creativity in music, to express yourself and your own individuality in music, song, and rhythm.  We all connect through the heartbeat common to us all.

And I will continue to showcase instruments and sales on my web-site to show what can be put to wonderful, convenient, and affordable use in your classroom

Earth Day – Today April 22, Restore OUR Earth

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021
Happy Earth Day. David Attenborough in the incredible BBC Earth and Life series, helps us understand the effect that changing weather has on animals, oceans/lakes/rivers, and people and how that changes how we survive. Animals that depend on certain seasons and temperatures for mating, gathering food, and survival, are challenged when it becomes unpredictable. Not enough ice to migrate when walking, not enough oxygen in the water, Temperatures of water not suited to current underwater populations, and food not available where needed as it has changed its timetable as well.
The Derecha that struck the American midwest destroyed homes and property and killed off 43% of Corn and Soybean crops affecting both the economy and the food supply. Are we really so important that we can’t come to grips with our effect on our world? A bit of recycling is helpful but not the big solutions. Carbon emissions do most of the damage. So, on Earth Day another chance to RESTORE OUR EARTH ~ It’s up to you and me.
