Mr. Bennie on the Drums

Mr. Bennie on the DrumsEast Elementary would like to thank our very own Mr. Bennie Gray for his amazing drumming performance and presentation on Monday, April 8th. Mr. Bennie works in the Zion District 6 Maintenance Department, but was a professional drummer before this and came to talk about the drumming and busking performances that made up his life when he was Chicago musician. We learned about his path from playing on the beaches of Lake Michigan to recording music for the Muppet Show. Then, when we were done, he took some student volunteers and taught them about proper playing techniques. Mr. Bennie closed out his performance by reminding us that “You can learn anything you want to, as long as you WANT to learn it”. It was a wonderful morning and we look forward to having Mr. Bennie back again in the future.
