ARTIST IN THE SCHOOL

The source file is in the Intranet. Any change made to this page will be overwritten by the update from Intranet.

The students and staff at Rivers Elementary were treated to a week of drumming workshops with Jay Stoller an African drumming specialist, with over 20 years’ experience.  Jay holds a Diploma in African Music from the University of Ghana. He has lived and studied drumming in Ghana for over four years.  He shared his insightful understanding of African music and culture with all of our school throughout his week here.  This was possible due to an Artist in the School grant we received.  All students and staff greatly enjoyed his residency here, which culminated in a final assembly Friday where each class performed what they had learned during the week.  This assembly was well attended by community and parents alike and our students cannot stop talking about what they would like to learn next year.
