    • Uncle Devin's 3-S Superheroes: Shaking, Scraping & Striking (Residency)

      Description:

      We provide hands-on professional development in pre-k to sixth-grade classes, working directly with educators and their students as they learn to incorporate the use of percussion in their curriculum.

      This residency is based on the teacher's needs and requirements, and on their subject matter/curriculum, which changes weekly. Therefore, no residency is the same.

      It is also a combination of professional development for the teachers and an integrated student learning experience. Each class is typically 45 minutes for a minimum of 4 days.

      We use different percussion instruments that shake, scrape, and strike, including body percussion, to make art integrated connections to other curriculum content.
