Just as petroglyphs are found around the globe, with many cultures creating different kinds of rock art, so all peoples share a universal urge to make music. Musicians, educators, and story-tellers Pete Fairley and David Blonski lead students in this exploration of music from multiple cultures and historical eras, combining David’s multi-instrumental melodic skills with Pete’s study of world percussion and rhythm. As students experience the sounds of instruments ranging from the Australian didgeridoo and the tabla drums of India to the electric guitar and drum kit, Pete and David weave a narrative linking the ancient with the modern, and highlighting the commonalities shared by diverse peoples worldwide. Opportunities for student participation occur throughout the program, and teachers will find they can integrate the experience into lessons in social studies, math, and science as well as music.
