This week at Uspiritus, UpstartU 2017 continued with Mr. Ed White, founder and executive director of Louisville’s River City Drum Corp. Mr. White brought in standing drums for each of the kids in this session and began teaching them a percussive rhythm sequence bit by bit, helping them memorize each part before adding on to it. The theme of the day was “stay in your lane.” Mr. White helped the kids pay attention to feeling the rhythm and to not getting distracted by what those around them were (or weren’t) doing. By the end of the session, the kids were playing in unison and having a great time! Mr. White will be back almost once a week throughout the summer to continue drumming with the kids at Uspiritus. The summer will culminate with a celebratory drumming performance by all!
