About the Event
Drumming has been used for eons to connect to a higher spirit, heal body, mind, and soul, mark life changes and earth changes, strengthen and build community bonds, relieve tension and reduce stress, and simply celebrate the pure joy of being alive! This is a perfect introductory workshop for those folks considering hand drumming instruction for the first time or want to join for future class offerings!
In this workshop we will cover the fundamentals of hand drumming including basic hand technique, exercises to help develop technique, some rhythm basics, two West African rhythms and songs, an opportunity to experience an improvisational musical experience, how to select a good drum, drum circle etiquette and much more!
DRUMS PROVIDED! No previous musical experience is necessary! All are welcome.
If you have a heartbeat, you have rhythm. To share rhythm with each other and express ourselves rhythmically is an important and basic human need! Come unleash your spirit through rhythm and enjoy an evening making music in a warm, supportive circle with new friends and long time Austin teacher and owner of DRUMZ teacher, Sherry Gingras. This event will be held IN PERSON at Shuniya Yoga Collective.
Please bring a smile and an open mind!
IN PERSON - $35 (early bird until 6/7)
