Experience the transformative power of rhythm!
This interactive and multicultural workshop provides teachers with the necessary tools to facilitate a drum circle using an innovative method created 25 years ago by Californian, Arthur Hull.
The workshop is built on a foundation of traditional rhythms, percussive techniques, improvisation, body percussion and rhythm activities using various instruments from around the world. Participants learn to find their own rhythm while listening to the other drummers.
The participants experience great enjoyment and stress release as they come to realize that in order to produce a harmonious performance, they need to listen to one another, and then engage with synchronism, coordination, discipline and concentration.
Why not enliven your class each morning with some rhythm? We will make a game of it.
Experience a dynamic workshop that will stimulate your student’s creativity, ingenuity, and collaboration while learning about a model to improve academic and social success using rhythm.
Are there no drums in your classroom? Employing our expertise, students will learn to create rhythms without a drum. Using furniture or other implements, their own bodies or the backs of their friends, they will soon discover that almost anything can be used as an instrument to create beats and rhythms.
While participating in our interactive group workshop, students will learn about teamwork, communication and shared leadership. Find out how these exciting and educational techniques can be integrated into your student programs.
If you can talk you can sing. If you can walk you can dance. All you have to do is kick, step, turn, hop, jump, reach, leap and wiggle.
