"Dynamic" Stone Mountain students create crowd-pleasing music

Dunaire's Dynamic Dolphins

- They’re called the “Dynamic Dolphins” – and some Stone Mountain third, fourth, and fifth graders are making a big splash in the world of music.

The Dynamic Dolphins is a group of Dunaire Elementary School students known for its energetic and creative xylophone performances.  The Dolphins perform under the direction of Chelsea Cook, who arranges pieces including the popular “Old School Medley” for the young musicians.  Cook instructs the students according to the Orff Approach, a method of music education which teaches kids to enjoy making music in groups and treats music as a basic, easy-to-learn language.  The Dynamic Dolphins have performed at the White House, and taken top honors at the Music USA Festivals in Orlando.

Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent some time hanging out with the Dynamic Dolphins, and even got to join in on the action!
