Dr. Larry Bradford, Instrumental Music Minister at Fairview Baptist Church, came and taught our 5th graders about African drumming. He went to Africa a few years back and studied African drumming. He taught them about the history of some of the African drums, the culture, and the country. He demonstrated how to play the instruments and then he allowed the students to play individually and then as a whole group. He even got the 5th grade teachers to join in! The students were very intrigued and enjoyed their time learning about African drumming.
