COS introduces Rhythm Ensemble, co-taught by Lusha Anthony and Shane Mulligan. The mission of Rhythm Ensemble is to improve students’ individual and ensemble rhythmic abilities through exposure to a wide variety of percussive music! Through this exciting opportunity, students will gain a fundamental comprehension of rhythm while enhancing their knowledge of world music and culture. This upcoming semester will center on the music of West Africa, where students will have the opportunity to play drums, shakers, bells, and even learn the traditional dance of this music! This class will be available to students and their parents.
