As children ages 6 to 9 gathered in the C.H. Booth Library's Meeting Room on July 9, music teacher Brad Peterson set up more than a dozen instruments for the first Multicultural Music class.

Throughout the lesson, he taught the children what the various instruments were, like the conga and djembe drums, and had them practice the proper ways of playing them.

Children also participated in singing traditional songs from around the world while learning rhythm through hand clapping exercises.

Those interested in attending the next Multicultural Music classes can register online and visit the C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street, on Monday, July 23.
