Summer Percussion Camp @Lauren Rogers Museum of Art

  • Lauren Rogers Museum of Art 565 N 5th Ave Laurel, MS, 39440 United States (map)

Percussion Camp with John Milham Kids will learn about all the different types of Percussion and Drums from around the World. They will get a chance to play rhythmic games that will build their "inner" sense of rhythm while playing together in a drum circle format. The kids will take part in what John calls the "Nature Jam" where the kids will get a chance to create a nature scene using instruments to make sounds of water,wind,rain,thunder,crickets,leaves,trees blowing, and other animal sounds.. This not only exposes them to why the instruments were first created, but also helps to open their senses to the sounds they hear while outside. This is also a great practice in cultivating their awareness and concentration. The kids will also learn different world rhythms and get to each play different parts together as an ensemble. These exercise develop their listening skills and teach them how to work together as a group. 


The Class will be offered from 2pm-5pm on July 22-25
