Hands On With Zig
The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation program, All Kinds of Art presented Zig Wajler, a professional musician and traveling teacher to Rocky Bayou Christian School's Destin campus this week. More than 60 students turned out to watch as Zig played a myriad of percussion instruments to tunes from across the globe.
“Music is for everybody,” Zig said to the students. “I really like music from other places.”
During his show, Zig played samplings of music from Native American rhythms to folk beats, to African drumbeats and different types of blues. Students clapped along and even danced in their seats.
Later Zig invited several students to try instruments for themselves, teaching them simple beats to play together as a group.
