Waterloo High School teacher, Mary Nolte says, "Thanks to an Alabama Arts Education Initiative Grant, the heritage of drumming will live on at Waterloo School." The Grant is funded through the Alabama State Department of Education.
"Drumming is a fun way to increase creativity, relieve anxiety, and develop motor skills," explains Mrs. Nolte. "Students of all ages at Waterloo School are excited to participate in drum circles, learning drumming techniques, and discover how drumming has been an integral part of cultures around the world."
