Join us as we kick off the 2019-20 school year with this hands on workshop integrating Social Emotional Learning (SEL), self-efficacy and arts/academic skills through classroom culture, relationship and student-derived data assessment.
Participants will be taken through creating SEL/arts integration routines and curricula and then building tools to assess self-efficacy development in those areas, quantitatively and qualitatively, over time.
Date & Time: Monday, August 19 & Tuesday, August 20, 2019 – 9:00am – 4:30pm
Location: Wisconsin Center for Music Education
Instructor: Dr. Yorel Lashley
Dr. Yorel Lashley’s desire to study West African traditional music led him to the Kankouran West African Dance Company in Washington, DC to learn from Master Drummer Medoune “Dame” Yacine Gueye, and Master Dancer/Artistic Director Assane Konte becoming a senior drummer with the company in 1998. His desire to master Afro-Cuban percussion led to study with Jorge Delgado at the Harbor Conservatory for the performing arts in Spanish Harlem. Yorel performed as a percussionist in New York and abroad and also led his own 10 piece NYC-based band, Melee, serving as a resident band at the Nuyorican Poet’s Café.
He is a founding member of the Handphibians of Madison, WI. In 2000, Yorel founded Drum Power Inc. (www.mydrumpower.com), a youth leadership program that uses learning West African Traditional, Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Cuban percussion to help young people practice life skills—discipline, community and leadership. To date Drum Power has supported more than 3,800 young people from New York City and Madison, Wisconsin. Academically, his research centers on youth empowerment teaching to better understand, develop and support student self-efficacy.
