Drum Unit continued, 1/2 MA Concert & Madagascar!

Our drum unit is still going, and students are enjoying playing rhythms, games galore, and exploring other percussion instruments, such as the shekere, agogo bell, cowbell, and bongo drums. We even played some "Presidential Rhythms" for President's Day! Of course, the Monster Pattern game is always a favorite! If the students play the rhythm pattern in the monster's mouth, they are out and have to "Get In The Belly!" (Go to the center & wait until no students play the pattern, then they get a jailbreak!)

Monster Rhythm


Tuesday night was our 1/2 Multi-Age music concert "February FUNuary", and the students did a great job! They sang the nine songs with great enthusiasm and pitch! Way to go, Westgate leaders!

Finally- I would like to invite all Westgate families to come and see me perform in "Madagascar, the Musical Adventure" in Medinah, IL. I play Marty the Zebra, and it's great fun, perfect for kids! I'll send out information soon. The show opens March 31st, and runs for only two weekends. You can also visit www.overshadowed.org for details.

Have a great weekend!

Mr. Berger ./`
