Allen Berg curriculum and projects learning centers

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

"Bang On Your Drums" for Spring,

Allen Berg
