Grades K-4 MTA: Third Coast Percussion’s Think Outside the Drum
Third Coast Percussion is a Grammy-winning, artist-run quartet of classically-trained percussionists. For more than ten years, the ensemble has forged a unique path in the musical landscape with virtuosic, energetic performances that celebrate the extraordinary depth and breadth of musical possibilities in the world of percussion. This show will be a fun, interactive, and educational introduction to the Building Blocks of Music. Performances by Third Coast Percussion are interspersed with teaching moments that introduce rhythm, melody, and timbre through active participation in a series of interactive activities including clapping, singing, and a listening game. Students learn about the extraordinary range of percussion instruments found in cultures around the world, as well as in their own kitchen cabinets.
