SAM2 in Schools, a show for gymnasiums
SAM2 in Schools is a student-friendly show developed exclusively for gymnasiums by Gregory Kozak and Justine Murdy. This low-tech production introduces students to the athleticism, humor and inventive musicality found in works by Scrap Arts Music, British Columbia’s internationally-acclaimed invented instrument, power percussion company.
In selecting repertoire for SAM2 in Schools, composer and instrument designer Gregory Kozak developed works for three performers. Our musicians are trained as multi-percussionists, and play a variety of idiophones, membranophones and aerophones that are hand-crafted from recycled and salvaged materials.
By turning scrap into art, and arts into music, SAM2 in School is an educational show about transformation. It suggests a new attitude toward tossed-away materials. Best of all, the student participation piece leaves students both energized and inspired.
Scrap Arts Music strives to open young minds to the art of the possible, encouraging creative thinking, and opportunities for discussion and enrichment. To help connect this production to your classroom curriculum, we have developed a Learning Guide with related teaching activities for students.
