African-American Awareness Club Hosts Visiting Musician

Seven Hills alumnus and professional musician Ahmad Muhammad ’06 recently returned to Seven Hills to perform and teach clinics to Middle and Upper School students in early February. One of Muhammad’s lessons was about rhythm bones, unique instruments composed of two small, wooden, sculpted sticks. Muhammad shared that rhythm bones were created in the 1800s by musicians in black and Irish communities. Muhammad gave rhythm bones to students who signed up for his clinics and later performed in The Schiff Center during the Upper School assembly. The musical workshop was hosted by Seven Hills’ African American Awareness program and served as a kick off for Black History Month.
