Click Here for ANGEL'S PERCUSSION INSTRUMENT GUIDE
The Angel Wagner Music Workshop is a multi-cultural introduction to the percussion sounds of the Caribbean and Latin America.
The program is designed to give each student a "hands on" experience. The goal of the workshop
is to teach students the names, uses, compositions, and countries of
origin for each individual instrument. Each workshop is custom designed to address the educational level of the students.
The workshop format has been presented before an entire school as a field trip, and as a classroom instructional. Angel's popular
and successful "Caribbean Tour" can be taught in English or Spanish. Angel supplies an ample amount of instruments according
to the number of students. The pre and post workshop cultural experience can be enhanced by utilizing the award-winning Web site to
continue the multi-ethnic learning experience.
State and Federal funding available through N.E.F.A. and
Massachusetts Cultural Council.

CELEBRATE LATINO MUSIC AND DANCE WITH THE WAGNER HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH AWARENESS PROGRAM
Teaching of the contributions of Hispanic Americans, and learning about the cultures from which they come,
will be the focal point of many classroom activities and discussions in the weeks ahead as students across
the United States recognize Hispanic Heritage Month -- September 15 to October 15.
During Hispanic Heritage Month, we reflect on the history of the people who were part of this land long
before the birth of the United States. Hispanics were among the earliest European settlers in the New World,
and Hispanics as a people - share a rich history and great diversity. Hispanic Americans have roots in Europe,
Africa and South and Central America, and Spain. This diversity has brought variety and richness to the mosaic
that is America and has strengthened our national character with invaluable perspective, experience, and values.
Many Hispanic Americans trace their roots to the cultures of the indigenous peoples of the Americas -- including
the Arawaks (Puerto Rico), the Aztecs (Mexico), the Incas (South America), the Maya (Central America), and the
Tainos (Cuba). Others trace their roots to the Spanish explorers, who in the 1400s set out to find an easier and
less costly way to trade with the Indies.
