In June I went to UCSD’s Camp Kesem with the Cancer Coping Center to drum and make music with kids who have parents with cancer. We played an arrangement of I Gotta Feelin’ by the Black Eyed Peas on BOOMWHACKERS! When I shared my arrangement online, I was humbled by the response, and I decided to do another simple boomwhacker arrangement for Just Dance by Lady Gaga. I’ll be using this with the kids next year.
To play the song with your own group, all you need to get are some boomwhackers and octavator caps. You can peruse more boomwhacker items by checking out the boomwhackers section in my inventory list. I use a glockenspiel for part of the melody, but you can also fill in your own words to fit the theme of your group. For instance, I filled in Camp Kesem’s song lyrics to the Black Eyed Peas Boomwhacker song.
