World Beat Drummers

Music is the universal language - World Beat speaks it!

World Beat is a group of students who learn and create music in the drumming tradition of Western Africa and many other countries around the world.  The drummers perform at school, throughout the community and across the state.  It will be an exciting year of performing and sharing music.
Drum Leaders: Mrs. Teri Akervik and Ms. Michelle Bowker   

Great news!  World Beat was able to purchase 30 new tubano drums this month.  We are thankful for Mrs. Maldonado, community donors, Barnes & Noble and the Duluth Curriculum Department for helping us buy the new drums.
