CES students learn about music

Campbellsville Elementary School students recently learned all about percussion.

 

Campbellsville University Steel Band members came to CES to perform and to teach students about music and how to play the drums.

 

CES students were chosen from the audience to perform with the band.

 

The event coincided with Music Week events at CES, which were April 24-28.

 

The week also included dress-up days based on genres of music and a contest for third-graders to make homemade musical instruments.

 

For more information, contact CES music teacher Cyndi Chadwick at (270) 465-4561.
