The rhythm of the drum is Reese Carr's passion.
And sharing his passion with others gives him a special feeling.
Reese Carr says: "Man, the full reward of it is seeing smiles on faces."
Especially when the smiles come from these young fans.
Like 10 year old Teresa, and 19 year old Katie.
Carr says: "Nice,,nice, awesome. Everybody say yey Teresa."
For the past year, Carr has been a Creative Artist In Residence at Children's Specialized Hospital, under a program called "ArtWorks."
Giving his time twice a month, to brighten children's lives.
Carr says: "My favorite part of doing this is that it's very simple in a way that unites everybody."
He makes his music contagious.
Letting the children handle and play his instruments.
Like the maraccas.
Or the shakers.
There's also the tambourine.
Carr says: "This is called a Guiro."
But his favorite, is the Dlembe drum, from West Africa.
And within an hour, he has transformed these children, into a percussion emsemble.
Carr says: "one, two three everybody...."
But there's more to this than music.
For these in-patient youngsters it's an incredible experience.
Recreational Therapist Jamie Richards says: "The kids have so much fun, they can reelase their pressures and anxiety from the day and be kids."
Especially, for those like Katie, who had to be cajoled into even coming into the room.
Linda Brunner, Katie's mother, says: "I was very pleased to see her druming by herself. Holding onto the drum and participating. It a lot of laughs and it was a lot of fun."
Katie says: "My hand is tired"
Reese gets exhausted by these sessions.
But he says, it's all worth it.
Carr says: "This is a great way to fuse my love of rhythm with my love of wanting to do something in the community I think it's very easy to complain about things. I know it sounds cliche, but you can give to people. You can share your energy in a way that's helpful."
