BAMBOOM is 100 % interactive drumming and call and response song chants and EXERCISE. The interaction of students with each other creates bonding and good feelings of happiness and joy.

Huge drums played by multiple students with drum sticks, in addition to marimbas and shakers create a healing environment. Music is the international language of kindness and love, together with empowering lyrics such as "Welcome healing in my body and in my world" are sung by all while drumming in easy call and response format.

Through the use of masks (Grandfather Turtle) Dr. Joe touches upon the idea of respect for the environment and the importance of clean water and clean air. Students experience more then just playing drums with themes of unity, honor and respect for each other and our planet. Dr. Joe enriches the lives of the youth through the Healing Power of Music.
