This week in our Thursday morning college, we sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Brian. After that Sean gave us a history lesson on drums. We learned that our hearts are like drums because they beat every minute of the day. We also learned that the very first drums were called Djembe. They came from West Africa and were used during gatherings. The second set of drums came from Egypt. Then John told us Native drums were made in the West Coast of Canada and they were used for singing and dancing. Sean taught us about the snare drum. They have two membranes. In 1317, the military used them for marching. The last drum that we learned about was the Tom Tom. It came from Asia. After our history lesson, Sean had some people come up to do some drumming. Then Stephen played the drums showing us different styles of music from Heavy Metal to Jazz to Classical.
