TEKS Based Curriculum Programs

using interactive performances to focus on geography, history and multiculturalism. Percussionist Dan Egger-Belandria takes students on a drumming journey from Africa to the Americas that explore rhythms and folklore, providing the experience in both English and Spanish. Interactive collaborative murals by artist Vickie McMillan integrate TEKS curriculum while demonstrating technique, creative learning, life skills and confidence building.
