Lessons in Percussion

Lessons in percussion

If you’ve heard some drumming coming from the Barnes Butte area, you’re not imagining things. Kindergartners through fifth graders have been getting lessons in West African hand drumming. Barnes Butte Elementary Music Teacher Phil White heard about a percussionist in Bend and invited Dale Largent to be an artist in residence at BBE. Mr. Largent is sharing some of his drums while spending three weeks teaching hand-drumming technique and songs to the blossoming musicians. Each class gets three 45-minute lessons. Thank you, Mr. Largent, for the West African hand drumming lessons!
