World Beat Drumming for Schools with Jordan Hanson

As a wrap-up of our April drumming month at Buchanan, all students at Buchanan and Hedges were fortunate to enjoy the World Beat Drumming for Schools program with Jordan Hanson on Thursday, May 3rd. Jordan is a percussion expert and music educator who has studied music in West Africa, Cuba, Brazil and Thailand. He travels all over Canada to share his experiences, knowledge and skills with students of all ages. Our students were introduced to many different kinds of percussion instruments, including instruments we had never seen or heard of before! Please see below for some video footage of this exciting day on our YouTube Channel!

Thirty-five students from Buchanan also participated in a workshop with Jordan this morning. Each student was given a djembe to play as Jordan led them through a series of unique, exciting and challenging patterns! Enjoy the video montage of this cool workshop!
