April 22: Drumming with/Tocando los tambores con Ernest “Grandpa” Clark

“Pa-ta pa-ta gom-u-lah”  using sounds like these and tongue twisters, Ernest taught us rythm and rhymes.

, [  Each child, and Mamá, had their own Toca to learn with and play.  Using different parts of the hands, using the fingers, slaps, pat-a-pats and more to mke different tones.  He even taught us ways to “talk” with our drums.  Sharing rhythm is sharing joy!
