Speaking Out and Being Heard

This week, students visiting the Curve enjoyed an interactive program, Speaking Out and Being Heard, presented by guest speaker and percussionist Paul Berns from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Berns incorporated rhythm and percussion into the workshop, which lent special focus to speaking confidently and communicating effectively, drawing on inspiration from the leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Check out the photo slideshow below!
