Mary Knysh held an engaging professional development session for music teachers at Lone Star Percussion in Dallas in September. Teachers drove from as far away as Tyler and Houston to experience this great day of exploring music improvisation, rhythmic activities and movement.

This clinic was sponsored by Rhythmband Instruments, Remo Inc and Lone Star Percussion and featured 21st Century Learning strategies with a brain based approach.  It was a great day with lots of inspired teachers at the end!
 
Research speaks to the importance of movement in brain based learning and these Boom whacker activities support simple movement with BW chord changes and improvisation.
