ASSEMBLIES
Musical Math
Phill uses world 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 drum rhythms from Latin America (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, China, 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 Rhythm and Math 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. (See Phil's YouTube video on how to make an origami popper - bottom right).

Then, they join together to form a giant drum circle featuring rhythms from West Africa, Brazil, Japan, and Indonesia!
