China Institute’s new “Percussion and Play” program is an interactive music class designed for younger learners and their caregivers. Participants will experience the colorful world of Chinese percussion instruments through stories, demonstrations and the playing of drums and cymbals, while being immersed in a Chinese-language environment.
Based on the ‘Mommy and Me’ model of early childhood music education, the program will emphasize the fundamentals of rhythm and melody as well as introducing simple musical notation. Children and accompanying adults will enjoy exploring a combination of traditional Chinese folk tales, Chinese language, and percussion. No musical experience or knowledge of Chinese is needed.
