I spent my childhood in Tokyo and attended a Japanese elementary school and an international school representing 34 nationalities. Having grown up in a culturally diverse environment, I want to help children cultivate a global perspective and expand their awareness and self-perception. Japanese festival drumming-taiko, Brazilian samba percussion and Cuban and Haitian drumming are effective vessels in this substantive process of discovery. Residencies allow students to embrace the creative process, design a strategy and polish their attributes toward the fanfare of performance. It is a pursuit beyond the 'art dip,' a journey of rich insight, a bold expression of our hunger to create. It enriches students and staff by making cultural connections between participants and the audience.
