Trash Talk JR and The 21st Century Extended Day Program
Training the next generation of unconventional drummers
What is trash talk Jr?
Trash Talk Jr is designed to introduce the power and excitement of drumming with recycled percussion to elementary school kids. Each class features original music composed for our unique instruments ranging from plastic buckets and barrels, metal pails, to good old trashcans. During the program, students are introduced to basic drumming technique and the innovative use of body/space percussion on these nontraditional instruments. Trash Talk Jr is the perfect way for children to explore the world of rhythm and drumming in a fun and unconventional way. No prior music experience is necessary.
Community Partner: 21st Century Extended Day program
The mission of the 21st Century Extended Day Program is to provide students with academic and enrichment programs after school. The 21st Century Program believes that when youth participate in self-selected, academically-rich, structured activities which are linked back to their school day, academic achievement increases. 21st Century makes their safe, caring, and academically inspiring environment affordable to students from all socio-economic backgrounds by featuring a subsidized childcare rate at each of the Title I Elementary Schools in Nashua, NH.
