DRUM AND GLOCKENSPIEL
Individuals have their own talents. A specific talent can draw students together. This togetherness is brought about by a particular inclination for a specific interest.
Some students have special interest for music, specifically, an interest in playing a musical instrument together with other students. They are interested in forming a group to play different instruments as a group or a corps.
As an answer to this interest the formation or organization of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University Grade School Drum and Glockenspiel is organized.
Through this corps, students will have the opportunities to be trained to play a musical instrument. Through this group, they will have the chance of not only develop their talents but also meet other students. The different activities of this group can further motivate them and can lead them to the wider threshold of the world of music.
The Drum and Glockenspiel aims to:
1. develop one’s talent in music;
2. play a musical instrument;
3. develop self-confidence and social discipline;
4. make more friends; and
5. join social events like parades, exhibitions, and other activities.
