Everyday Tampa Bay: Drumline at Potter Elementary School

There’s nothing mysterious about drumline, said Foster, who has been playing the drums since he was 2. He introduces a routine, sometimes one he has improvised on the spot. He demonstrates the bass part, then the quads and the snare. He walks those on cymbals through the choreography of twirling instruments overhead as a visual counterpoint to the steady beats. “We play high school and college cadences, and I water it down some for them. But then once they get it, I start making it harder, and they have fun with it.” Lauren Godwin, 10, favors the bass, because “you have to be loud.” OCTAVIO JONES | Times
