KidzJam is a playgroup designed to introduce kids to new instruments, genres, and cultures. They make-and-take an instrument at every group and learn songs and dances taken from many cultures.
We previously explored:
- Chinese New Year with guest instructor Minyi Shaw introduced songs and cultural traditions with an impromptu Mandarin reading/writing session!
- Mi’kmaw (also Mi’kmaq or Micmac) Christmas music with guest instructor John Dennis, Cultural Director for the Aroostook Band of Micmacs.
- Traditional Indian Kathak dance and music. Children were introduced to costumes, music, instruments and each made ankle bells to practice percussive dance steps.
