There is a rhythm in education. It can be found in classrooms across the country, no matter the subject, reaching students in wonderful ways that promote the core objectives of today’s curriculum. This rhythm can be seen as teachers call on students for answers, or as they rotate through activities that allow hands-on learning. This rhythm, however, requires a guide or facilitator, an energized and motivated teacher who knows just how to pull a proud smile out of a shy kid, or temper the outburst of a more vocal and highly-engaged student. So many teachers understand the importance of encouraging that rhythm in order to best reach students, yet, sometimes it can be hard to get into the groove in a classroom. Finding that rhythmic “sweet spot” can make a school day, or even the entire year, a wonderful adventure for students and teachers, especially when drumming is involved.
