World Drum Ensemble

At Options this year Danya has decided to take a drum class.  While they learn new drum routines and techniques on practice drums, they are all working on making and designing their own personal drums.  Danya has been painting, twisting ropes, stretching goat hide across the top and generally impressing me with all she's learning.  I'll admit.  I rolled my eyes a bit when I heard what class she wanted to take.  A whole YEAR of banging a drum?  But it's turned out to be more of geography/history/music appreciation class.  And she's having a great time, which is what really matters.
