I chose to spotlight this fun lollipop drum in our session this morning.
I love the resonance it gets and the way its thin design allows for easy storage. Most of all, I like the fact that *I* can hold onto the handle while the student drums (which means I’M in charge of when the drum goes away).
We use it in a number of traditional (and non-traditional) ways.

I had the great pleasure of putting this session together with Dr. Fernanda Nieto.
Additional reflection-related resources I’ve created can be found here:
- Our full handout, including a robust list of questions for self-reflection
- My (simple!) Performance Journal Reflection exercise for students (and teachers!)
- An “employee” satisfaction survey for the self-employed
- A Weekly Reflection tracker to maximize studio efficiency!
