THE STORY: Too often, the only images portrayed of our youth are negative. However, we know there are other stories to tell. The reality is, more community based activities and meaningful programs are needed. That is why Muntu is launching United We Drum. United We Drum is a youth centered music instruction program. This program is not just about teaching music. It is also a mechanism through which youth can learn about themselves and their own capacity to achieve.
UNITED WE DRUM HELP TURN A CHILD'S LOVE OF MUSIC INTO MUSICIANSHIP!
Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago's United We Drum class is a 4 week program that will run every Saturday, July 7, 2018 to August 11, 2018 at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts (915 E. 60th St., Chicago, IL 60637). The program will serve youth ages 7-17 years old at 11am-12pm on Saturdays. Instruction will be given by Master drummers. Program participants will be taught the history and cultural context of rhythms and be given opportunities to explore their own creativity. The program will culminate at Muntu’s United We Drum Family Day where participants will be featured performers showcasing what they have learned. Our goal is to raise $3,000. We want to ensure that UNITED WE DRUM is available to as many youth as possible. Therefore, scholarship opportunities will be available. To do this, we need your help.
