This is a video of the culmination of just one aspect of
the 2010 Summer Intensive with the Boys and Girls
club of the Greater Fredericksburg area. I worked with
the children in this clip to build a trash can band,
focusing on the rhythms of Brazil. Ms. Ida Leak, a
wonderful teacher from Richmond, taught some
aspects of African dance to compliment the music.
After the Microburst.... Play ON!!!
Just after the thunderstorm rolled overhead, our ensemble was soaked from head to toe. We all came into the studio, and rocked the house one more time!! This clip is an action shot, capturing the power of the music, and its infectious rhythms!! The kids came up with a simple vocal line to follow the melody. Everyone join in!!
