In 2021, Joseph Peck, a professional steel drum musician and music educator, brought his expertise in world music to the students at Sulphur Springs Union School District in a virtual learning setting.
Peck is a founding member of Babylon Saints — an LA-based reggae-rock band and has performed throughout the United States. His passion to inspire and educate resonated well with Sulphur Springs Union School District students. Peck has successfully collaborated with students of all ages and ability levels, from lower elementary school to high school students.
In the spring of 2021, the Sulphur Springs Union School District brought artists from across different mediums to collaborate with students, working to integrate the arts into their curriculum, despite the challenges of COVID-19 and distance learning.
Now, in the spring of 2022 — and in honor of Youth Arts Month — take a look back at exactly how these artists and educators pivoted to teach arts in new ways.
