Adreyn's Drum Circle

Tonight was open house at school. Adreyn's grade also participated in a drum circle. It was pretty cool. All the kids sat in 3 circles and in front of them were mats with an instrument (several of them were different) on them. The teacher would play a rhythm and the kids would repeat it with their instruments. Periodically the kids would move over one space and use the new instrument. It was neat to see how the kids had learned how to use the different percussion instruments and to follow directions and music. I have a video of part of the drum circle uploaded on my facebook account. Blogger hasn't been letting me load video. (in the video Adreyn is pretty much in the middle of the screen--most of the time).
