In 2017, a Georgia Music Foundation grant was awarded to Fair Oaks Elementary School in Marietta for “Pop Zing Boom!,” a week-long residency presented by teaching artist Dave Holland and Beatin’ Path Rhythm Events. Five intensely-focused workshops were presented each day to give every student the opportunity to experience demonstrations, mini-performances and hands-on exploration in sound and science principles. Fair Oaks, named a National Blue Ribbon School in 2013, is also “Leader in Me” Lighthouse School, which uses the seven habits of highly effective people to develop student leaders.
