Percussionist Isidro "Boba" Bobadilla, who has recorded with many artists including Juan Luis Guerra, played tambora and guira with WHEELS music students last Friday during a class where he discussed the history of merengue music. WHEELS students are now fortunate enough to have the opportunity to take weekly classes with Boba!

WHEELS 1st and 2nd graders have been studying percussion and playing a cha-cha-cha groove in music class. Here are some of the 2nd graders practicing reading and playing their parts in groups.

Meanwhile, returning middle and high school band students have been working hard coaching new band students.
