Butler School of Music: Cool Drumming - All About Rhythm!
Presented by Clowes Education

Registered School Groups:  Adult $15, Student $8

Rhythm can be found all around the world! The various cultures around the world each have their own styles of rhythm. They use many unique percussion instruments to create their rhythms. You don’t have to use a large drum to create your very own rhythm though! Every time you clap or snap or tap your feet, it’s rhythm. It’s in the way you breathe, your heartbeat, and every step you take when you walk or run. Rhythm is in everything if you just listen. Butler University’s Percussion Ensemble will educate and entertain you as they take you on their rhythmic adventure in music.

Educational Music, 75 minutes
