To The Beat of the Drum

April 20, 2021

Through a new drumming program led by music teacher Lauren DeMarzo, Riverhead Middle School students are learning to play Tubano drums.

Currently, seventh graders enrolled in general music have been playing the drums and learning to create rhythmic patterns and compositions from various musical cultures. The program is set to expand with the formation of a new World Drumming after-school club. Students will learn more about drumming in a performance setting.
