A Joyful Synthesis of Music, Story-telling and Creative Writing!
Innovative drum circles offer a joyful synthesis of rhythm, storytelling and creative writing! In this workshop participants will explore the links and connections between rhythm, music and verbal and non-verbal storytelling and creative writing.
The workshop will include a wide variety of instruments. However, absolutely no musical background is necessary. if available, we encourage participants to bring along their own instruments as well (so dust off that old flute, clarinet or drum in your closet and bring it along!). Join us for a fun, engaging and illuminating exploration!
