George Hooks, or “the Drum Man,” as the children of HALB Lev Chana fondly call him, had our children happily bonking out rhythms and beats with boom wackers, drums, cymbals, and rhythm sticks. What a fun and exciting way to work on listening skills, following directions, and learning about tempo, beat, soft, and loud! Our children jammed to the beat of the Drum Man’s kick drum and guitar, and played a rousing game of hot and cold using soft whirling hands on drums to signify cold, drumming fingertips for warmer, and loud pounding for hot (You’re there, you found it!). What a fun and merry way to welcome Chodesh Adar!
