We were thrilled to have a guest percussionist present his program "Journey Across the World Through Rhythm" for all of our students on Dec. 16. Nikao Wallace is a professional musician who is a member of a local band and works with the drum line at Shelby High School. Our students thoroughly enjoyed his program as he performed for us on his drum set as well as sharing information about music around the world. Students were given the opportunity to play his Djembe, which is an authentic drum from Africa. Some students were also allowed to play along with Nikao on some of our classroom drums. Thank you Nikao for sharing your musical talent and interesting program about music from cultures around the world.
