Phil and the students play and say their math facts with West African rhythms.

ASSEMBLIES
– Math Fluency with West African Rhythms –
Phil uses West African drum rhythms to teach and reinforce math facts: doubles & doubles + 1, skip counting, and multiplication.

He begins by showing the students how to clap their math facts with hand drum rhythms from West Africa (Phil offers separate primary and intermediate presentations with appropriate grade-level content).

Using popular Boomwhacker tubes and his Indonesian xylophone, Phil shows how the same fractions of length are used to make music in Indonesia, Mexico, Ghana, and the Caribbean!

Finally, Phil gives your teachers and students a free downloadable CD with all of his math facts tracks to practice at home and school.

FAMILY ACTIVITY NIGHTS
– Rhythm and Math Night –

At the family night, the kids learn how to make musical instruments with geometric shapes and fractions, and apply their knowledge to build origami poppers and tube drums.

Then, they perform popular hand drum rhythms from Nigeria, Guinea, and Liberia, and join together to form a giant drum circle featuring rhythms from around the world!
