Drum Circle

Effinger Elementary School – 2007-2008 – Drums, temple blocks, and a guiro were purchased for all students in pre-school through fifth grade to use in a drum circle, a program focusing on making music in the moment and on personal and group development, wellness, and creativity.  Drum circles help develop fine and gross motor skills and increase self-esteem, cognitive functions, communication, and coping and social skills.   Regularly-scheduled evening workshops include parents and other interested community members, and opportunities for cross-curricular learning with social studies abound.
