Dear Arts/Music/Drama Colleagues
and Visiting Teachers from the Projects-Based Learning Group

(who have been following the Japanese Cultural History Discussion
that led to the Taiko Drum Videos):
Here is a Flash Mob Video from youtube that occurred at Times Square in New York City April 7, 2011...
which showcases cheap plastic upside-down trash cans and a smaller generic plastic bucket, as lively and fun Taiko Drummers
beat their music for an accompanying group of street dancers to celebrate Public Collective Aliveness
with Art/Music/Drama/and Dance...

"Yes! This is easily repeatable at your school!"
Like I said over at the PBL Teachers Group, just make sure "You give the Biggest Drum to your School Principal..."
"Bang On Your Drums" for Spring,
Allen Berg

Hi Allen,
We just had the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco. Wouldn't it be great if schools can sustain or have more music programs?
