I discovered a new place in Indy and wanted to share it with you! On a field trip last week to the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, our school stopped off at the Rhythym! Discover Center. Located at 110 W Washington Street, right down the street from the IRT, is this hidden gem. If you love music, this is a great place to visit to experience ways in which percussion and rhythms influence music accross the globe. There are interactive exhibits where you can try instruments - including two sound proof rooms for those with inner-rock star dreams to go crazy on the drums.
My favorite part of the group tour we had for the field trip was the "drum circle". The tour guide ( who also seemed well versed in playing most everything he showed us) played Conductor to our group of 70 ish kids who played bongos, tambourines, snare drums, morrocos, and various other percussion instruments. He would play a rhythm that they would play back to him on the instruments. Kind of like the game "Simon". My daughter is learning to play the guitar so this was a very useful and fun way for her to explore music further. I would recommend stopping by with your kids (or kids at heart)!
