Students will look at the relationships between math and musical rhythms. Each class will include both a discussion of rhythmic concepts such as note durations and time signatures. Students will learn to read music and play with drum sticks on a drum pad, combining kinesthetic playing while counting and subdividing rhythms. The class culminates in a percussion ensemble where they read different parts and play various percussion instruments such as castanets, guiro, maracas, and thunder tube.
