Sean and Anthony performed a handful of Beatles tunes and originals, in addition to the fan-favorite “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”. In between some of the selections, Sean taught the kids the difference between high and low pitches, finding the back-beat, being able to clap along on beats 2 and 4, and the wide variety of ways that Vic Firth sticks can create unique sounds on the drums and cymbals. The kids especially liked the retractable brushes; they thought it was a magic trick!
“It’s a very rewarding experience to see all of the kids so enthusiastic about music at such a young age,” said Anthony Viscounte.
After one of the tunes an excited Pre-K student shouted, “That was fantastic!”
Sean said, “If kids are exposed to live music now and start loving it, while they’re 4 and 5 years old, it will last a lifetime. I hope more musicians will go out into the classrooms – if you can positively affect one kid’s life, it is all worth it!”
