Rhythms Around the World

  • Rhythms Around the World by Mary Knysh | Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania


Experience the music and rhythms of our world community. Students travel to an array of cultures through songs, instruments, legends, and history. Through active participation, this program encourages students to find their unique musical skills while enhancing their individual creativity. When scheduling this program, schools may choose regions of the world.
Experiential learning is a core goal for each of Mary’s performances, residencies, and workshops. Mary engages students on a musical world tour through singing, body percussion, and cultural instruments.

Through the introduction of a variety of unique world instruments Mary explores the essential question of how people all over the world use music as a form of self-expression, connection, and communication. 

One of the other primary goals of Mary’s performances is to help students understand how music is directly connected to the daily lives of those who are creating it and to encourage and empower each student to discover the natural and gifted musician that lives within each of them!
