|Drumming at Thacker Avenue Elementary|
By Shana H. Rafalski, Principal
I can still remember the first time I heard “Jana the Drum Lady” drumming with a group of students. There was a feeling deep in my chest as I heard the droning beat of the Djembes and I was immediately mesmerized. It was easy to come to the conclusion that this was something the students at my school needed to be exposed to. Since then I have seen first hand just how valuable the experience can be for children in building their self-esteem, while cooperating within a group which requires them to concentrate on counting beats and following patterns. The shared experience is something I have seen grow in many schools and I consider it an essential part of the total program we offer our students. We are trying to teach international-mindedness by living our mission statement “The Thacker Avenue Elementary School for International Studies community is committed to academic excellence within a safe, supportive and enriching environment focused on mutual respect and inquiry-based learning” everyday.
When I was first asked to write about my perspective of having drumming in an elementary school, I went straight to my students and led them in a writing lesson about why they thought it was important for them. They assisted me in coming up with several valid reasons why it is so important. They expressed how drumming is important to them because it helps them express themselves. One student was quoted as saying, “Drums help us express our inner peace.” Drumming is a way to build their self-esteem by performing in front of an audience. They said that the audience gives them confidence because they respect them when they perform, cheer and take pictures. They also expressed that it helps them overcome their fear of performing.
Teachers and staff have come to expect that we will spend time at the opening of a new school year and to close each one out in a drum circle. It is a time to come together as a faculty for team building, fun and to cleansing our minds. The ritual of starting and ending our year in the same way brings balance and certainly excitement to these hectic times of the year.
