Drum Brazil: Drumming Up New Understanding! Less

This residency immerses students in another culture through the experience of learning how to play Brazilian drums and becoming a representation of that culture. This program can be tailored to almost any age range and groups large or small. The most important aspect is the hands-on participation of students in the rhythmic and repetitive practices of Brazilian samba schools through singing, dancing and drumming.

For Kindergarten and First Grade classrooms, sessions are 20-30 minutes (pro-rated) and emphasize body movement and songs in addition to playing the drums.

Minimum Number of Sessions: 3

Additional Costs:
Fewer than 20 students, $25 for drum rental per day.
21-30 students, $50 for drum rental per day.
30-40 students, $75 for drum rental per day.
40+ students, rental fee determined by group size.

If the artist is to provide earplugs for students, there is an additional charge of $1 per set of earplugs.

Venue Requirements: Artist prefers to be set up in a separate room and have students come there; needs a few minutes between classes to reset. Set-up and Take-down: the artist needs 30 min before and after the program to load in and load out. For the best experience, a large space (theater stage, gymnasium, lunchroom) away from other classrooms is ideal as the open area allows sound to dissipate and minimize the effects on other classrooms. Video projection will be utilized if available. Depending on space and group size, the purchase of earplugs for students may be necessary.
