A Rising Star!

We had a much smaller group this week, which was nice as it allowed me to connect with more of the children. One child, named Michael, really stood out this week with his amazing drumming skills. He spent the jam session banging away in perfect time as well as adding beautiful drum fills whenever an opening presented itself. I was completely amazed at how accurate his timing was and how creative he was on the instrument. I made sure to tell him and his older sister (the mother was working) how talented I thought he was and how this talent should be nurtured. The sister didn't know he possessed any musical talent and was excited to tell their mom. It's moments like these that make this type of work so fullfiling. I will definitely encourage him to play more drums, both inside and outside of class. He clearly demonstrates a real talent for drumming and I hope we can work with him to achieve his musical goals!
