— The sounds of drums, a didgeridoo and guitar filled the Harriet Thompson Elementary School gym this past week, thanks to Seattle musicians Cody Beebe and Blake Noble.

The young musicians were visiting Grandview elementary schools to expose the students to the many forms of music and different types of instruments.

For the past week, Beebe and Noble presented concerts at each of Grandview elementary schools, introducing the children to the mysterious sounds of the didgeridoo, a native Australian musical instrument.

The musical pair have worked specifically with the Grandview School District’s fifth graders in classroom workshops. This week, the fifth graders were given opportunities to learn more about the didgeridoo, as well as crafting their own didgeridoo.

As the school year processes, the Grandview School District plans to have Beebe and Noble return to the district to work with the middle and high school students.
