      ADVENTURES IN RHYTHM is engaging, as "Mr. Steve" performs chants and songs for & with the audience, letting them become part of the action! In addition to the basic "elements of music" (pitch, tempo, tone and duration). Steve explores the history/geography of percussion instruments, their origins, rhythms, the science of sound, & the social skills one must acquire to be both a successful performer & a productive member of an ensemble (ie; team, community, society). Classes become "Bucket Bands," learn & hone new skills together! Steve is very flexible & is happy to incorporate themes, curriculums, & can adjust program length.
