The Language of Drumming

  • The Language of Drumming with Josh Robinson
  • The Language of Drumming with Josh Robinson


Students play, compose, conduct, and perform traditional and student-composed original percussion music using congas, bells, shakers, guiros, found objects, and various sound effects or “toys.” Along the way they develop communication skills that are vital to playing music with others, such as eye contact and focused listening. The emphasis is on the teamwork and awareness required to play in an ensemble, with a student conductor leading the way. Finally, students compose short “rhythm poems,” individually and in small trios or quartets.
