What We Offer
| Workshops || |
Every year Sound Kids Drum and Dance brings the region’s finest music and dance teachers to Olympia to spend a day with local teachers. Workshop themes range from general techniques on teaching rhythm and movement to specific grooves and dances from world music to Hip Hop traditions. Clock hours are available for workshop participants. Additionally, Sound Kids offers monthly follow-up gatherings, where teachers can practice newly learned skills with each other, as well as share ideas.
| Instruments & Resources || |
Sound Kids maintains an extensive collection of child-sized percussion instruments – drums, bells, shakers and more - and is eager to make them available to qualified people working with groups of children. We also offer instructional materials and music from our library and on our website.
| On-Going Support || |
We identify and promote professionals – local and nonlocal – who can work in the classroom; we provide volunteers in the classroom and in after-school programs. We create opportunities for children to perform, such as our annual Samba Skate at Skateland.
