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.
