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 with Art/Music/Drama/and Dance... http://www.youtube.com/user/wellsfargo?v=xjG9ggZmttk&feature=pyv&ad=1061... "Yes! This is easily repeatable at your school!" Like I said over at the PBL Teachers Group, just make sure "You give the Biggest Drum to your School Principal..." "Bang On Your Drums" for Spring, Allen Berg
