Film Description:
"To an audience of eager youngsters, Eugene Kash, conductor of the Ottawa Children's Concerts, explains the fundamentals of rhythm and introduces the percussion instruments. An old Indian tomtom is compared with modern drums, and a children's rhythm band performs under the direction of a diminutive leader. Final scenes in music classes show how Ottawa teachers capitalize on the interest stimulated by the concerts."
