This workshop will focus on rythmic awareness through drumming and physical motion. Through drumming, we are able to cultivate a clearer understanding of the rhythm that exists around and within us at all times. These rhythms affect our everyday existence with or without our concious awareness. Through nurturing our personal awareness of rhythm, we are better able to understand and respond to our world. No previous musical experience is required. Instruments will be provided for the workshop.
