Percussion Optimizes Potential

Music Sept 2013

Last week Western music students made the journey to North York Centre to visit Soul Drums Ltd and the Toronto Centre for the Arts.  At Soul Drums Ltd, internationally recognized drum circle facilitator Doug Sole led Western students through his Percussion Optimizes Potential drum circle program which combines culturally specific African hand drum practices with character education.

Later that afternoon the student attended a live performance of Jonathan Larson’s semi-autobiographical musical “Tick, Tick…Boom!” at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.  After the show, the cast and crew participated in a humorous and engaging question period, offering the students a glimpse into the creative process behind the creation of a stage show.
