The Rhythm of Life: Drumming for Your Soul
led by Drum For Change's Greg Whitt
Celebrate with us on Friday.night and experience a hands-on rhythm-based workshop and drum circle using a mix of hand drums and other complimentary instruments. By drumming and making music together we will be activating wellness and empowerment concepts using rhythm, song, and movement. Tribal cultures have known these things all along, but that we now have neurological research to support them: making music together is good for you!
During the program we’ll navigate a continuum of control through a dynamic play process that involves small successes to build familiarity and ease. We’ll start with rhythm games and call and response activities based in ancient learning models. We’ll evolve this into featured songs and chants from indigenous traditions that highlight values of service, unity, partnership, holistic lifestyle, and resonance.
This will be an incredible experience as we fill the room with amazing sound. EVERY person will have a real instrument capable of really high volume so come prepared for the excitement, come prepared for the fun, and maybe come prepared with some ear plugs if that feels right.
