Hollywood, here we come! On Monday, we joined the audience of an exhilarating TEDxHollywood presentation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uB9xzYL1DU), listening to and playing along with Doug Manuel as he explained and demonstrated the appeal and power of the djembe and collaborative music-making. Students found this fun and challenging! Afterward, students shared their thoughts on the experience and took turns generating their own unique rhythms for the class to follow. On Wednesday, we started using GarageBand software to record the basic rhythms we create and layer on counter-rhythms to create an audible feast!
