You can show you’ve got rhythm this week in an innovative class project

If you’ve got rhythm and want to join others at Wake Forest in an innovative class project this week, now is the time to jump in and share in the fun.

Music department lecturer John Beck is inviting faculty, staff and administrators to record a brief video of themselves banging out a rhythm and share it with him for inclusion in a drumming class’s project.  In other words, Beck wants to share a “call and response” imitation video in which students see and hear cameo appearances by faculty, staff and administrators playing their simple rhythm responses back to the students.

Beck explains how easy it is to participate in a video called “You Play a Rhythm–I Play it Back Video.”

It’s recommended that any participants watch the video, first, before recording their response.  The video demonstrates the rhythm or rhythms participants will play.

Smart phone recordings should be uploaded by April 24 to the Graduating Student Drumming Project Folder.
