The 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at Ross Elementary, Topeka Public Schools’ signature music school, were visited by guest musicians as part of the school’s Artists in Residence program. The Topeka Blues Society, headed by Suki Willison, helped arrange the guest musicians and provided harmonicas for the 4th grade class.
The musicians are spending several weeks at Ross to teach students about blues music and different kinds of instruments. This program, called “Blues at Ross,” will conclude with a concert on January 31.
The kids had a great time learning from the visiting musicians!
