'Atelier Band'

Room 5 at the Gilliate building has a young man who loves to display his natural rhythm. Cason is frequently using different tools to create sound patterns and always shows great interest any time he has the chance to play the drums. In the studio, he was encouraged to show a group of friends what he knew. Before we knew it, Cason was leading the rhythm section of our impromptu ‘Atelier Band’! While the artistic and creative implications of such an activity are obvious, so much more can be taken from like experiences. Can you pinpoint the concepts in math? How about science? What about the value to social-emotional development? When children are allowed to creatively explore their learning processes, they will present us with everything we need to know moving forward!!!
