Through this virtual, yet interactive program, Third Coast Percussion will present the three building blocks of music: rhythm, melodies and timbre. Throughout the program, the members will use various call and respond techniques to encourage students’ participation and help them explore musical concepts. Students will also learn about the extraordinary range of percussion instruments that can be found in cultures around the world, as well as in their own homes. This will be a live-streamed concert with opportunities for participating classrooms to submit questions to the musicians for them to personalize the concert by answering questions and engaging in dialogue with students, just as they would in-person.
