Music Therapy Drumming (MTD) is a curriculum founded by American music therapists Bill Matney, Kalani Das, Michael Marcionetti, and Carolyn Koebel. These professional percussionists also hold degrees in music therapy, and combined their knowledge from both fields to generate this curriculum.
Traditional music and cultural contexts from Brazilian, West African, and Middle Eastern styles will be explored and experienced. Emphasis will be on musical playing techniques, vocabulary building, and increased competence in using percussion in music therapy applications, particularly for accompaniment and clinical improvisation.
MTD Primer is the pre-requisite to register for Music Therapy Drumming Level 1 Certificate courses, offered in China by music therapists/ percussionists Carolyn Koebel & Kalani Das, two of the founding members of the MTD curriculum in the U.S.
This primer will offer specific emphasis on playing techniques for djembe/ cone drums, frame drums (tar and lap-style), bass drums, shakers, and auxiliary percussion instruments. Deeper understanding of the Rhythmic Ground (Brusicia/ Gardstrom) will be explored, exploring duple and triple meter, as well as pushed and straight “feels”. Participants will receive individualized attention to strengthen their playing technique and resources for musical facilitation.
A certificate of attendance will be awarded upon request to serve as evidence to claim continue education credits for music therapists/creative arts therapists.
Don't miss the chance to join this workshop!
This workshop will offer you a quick tune-up on basic djembe-style playing techniques for bass, tone, and slap, as well as an overview of frame drums and mixed hand percussion. Powerful, clear, technique offers a strong foundation for the use of percussion in clinical settings. You will have the ability to facilitate sessions musically as your skill sets increase.
Your music will be more motivating and engaging, leading to more desirable clinical outcomes. Increasing your rhythmic vocabulary will allow you to connect with a broader range of clients whose musical tastes may span multiple genres. You will learn the basic theory and construct of how to organize your hands, or handedness, in order to play a stable, predictable rhythmic ostinato that will allow you to create satisfying accompaniment patterns with which you can successfully add your voice to accompany songs in fresh ways.
Drums are naturally appealing to clients with a broad range of abilities, and we have the capacity to adapt and customize our rhythmic interventions in order to be as challenging or as inclusive as necessary to meet our clients where they are at.
The workshop will be conducted in English.
