Jacob and I had the opportunity to teach this amazing young lady at a music camp all the way up in Cordova, Alaska. She got really into the Rhythm Blocks, practiced them all week, and showed us this at the end.
Truly a testament to the healing and engaging power of body percussion, Rose* (who at 13 has a degenerative neurological condition) got inspired to take on the fun and challenging “Rhythm Blocks” and displayed major progress in coordination over the one week music camp. Her joyful musical energy and tenacity taught us a thing or two about “heart”.
