St. John Primary pre-kindergarten student Taylor Hendricks smiles with delight as she tries her hand at using a Boomwhacker instrument in Mrs. Melissa Heroman’s music class.

The Boomwhacker is a lightweight, hollow, color-coded, plastic tube which is tuned to musical pitches based on various lengths.

Mrs. Heroman uses the Boomwhackers to teach pitch and rhythm.
