Thank you to Inwood Art Works Culture Hub for including WHEELS students alongside professional musicians in the Inwood Music Festival!

Thank you to Luke Folger (a.k.a. Unigen) for visiting WHEELS last week and working with 3rd and 7th grade music students! He showed us how he composes and improvises using loops. He even recorded the 3rd graders playing various instruments, and then improvised using samples from those recordings.
