Claxton Students Drum with Giving Tree Music

"Imagine a circle of kids, drumming together, holding a common pulse, and weaving a facilitated rhythm into a cohesive musical experience!"

This is how Giving Tree Music's website describes their youth programs, and we can't think of a better match for Claxton's Leader in Me and arts integration themes.

On Tuesday, October 11, every Claxton student had the opportunity to come together in a drum circle. Students learned how to communicate through drumming, absorbed the mathematics of rhythm, and had a great time drumming, dancing, and moving.

Our thanks to Giving Tree Music for visiting us annually to bring our student community together in this wonderful way. And thank you to Mr. Butler for making it happen!
