You will often hear students drumming on lunch tables, desks, and their own laps throughout the school. This is because of Jeff Ballard. Mr. Ballard has created and directed our very own Rees African Drumming group, also known as RAD. He has been organizing this group for the last thirteen years! He spends many, many hours planning, preparing and teaching drumming to students. The beats and rhythms students play come from all around the world. We have been so lucky to have him here at Rees giving students this musical opportunity. Thank you Mr. Ballard!
