Beat that Drum is an original composition and SATB arrangement by Lauren Kinhan. This is a feel good, uplifting song about growing up and through those experiences you come to better understand, perhaps, your parents, grandparents, teachers, etc. It’s original function was to be taught orally, in the gospel tradition, so the sections get right to tone, inflection, dynamics and memorization of the lyrics, but it could certainly be taught the other way. It is easy, intuitive writing, appropriate for all levels. Don’t let easy deter you, though, watch the video and see how fun this piece is for all ages. Click here to read more.
