In the story Suki's Kimono drums are used to show mood. Learners discuss mood in the story after they practice playing a simple 4/4 rhythm on their drums. Each group plays the rhythm using a different tempo. They listen to each other play and discuss how the tempo might change the mood. They then discuss how different cultures use drums to convey mood or ideas.
