Note: This talk is not open to members of the public.
Music has a way of capturing the imagination and getting people excited and interested in new things. A powerful form of self-expression that requires a high degree of mastery and learning, music and movement activities are a great way to help students learn and develop their motor skills; and are a great way to introduce the concept of creativity through music. Join Derek Koh in this thoroughly designed rhythmic challenge using body percussion to build creativity, rhythmic confidence, and ensembleship.
