K-12, Colleges & Universities

My mission is to share knowledge about indigenous African arts to as many students, faculty and the community as is possible.Over the years, I have performed in schools and seen tremendous enthusiasm from students wanting to learn drumming, dancing and singing. As a teacher, I have noticed that teaching indigenous arts helps students to achieve the following music educational standards:
-matching body movement and rhythmic patterns
-perform dances, songs and appreciate music from other cultures
-perform and identify instruments from other cultures.

The following is a list of Schools, Day cares and Universities where I have performed in the past.
