Rob Duquette – World Music
April 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Through his many years of experience playing and teaching world music, Rob brings a fun and culturally rich presentation of world music styles to young students, showing them through percussion, how the different styles are built and what they mean to their cultures, and in turn, to ours! Children and adults, participate with world music rhythms and concepts made accessible to their age group. Through percussion we can learn about culture!

He’s got a few songs that are just plain silly too…..
