Event description
Comox Valley Drumming and Movement Classes are not your typical drum circle.

About this Event

Are you an experienced musician? Or, are you a beginner? Can you keep a beat or are you hopelessly out of step? It doesn't matter! This class uses everyday objects to explore percussion, rhythm, and experimentation in a fun and relaxing environment.

This year's classes will feature a 10-week curriculum.

  1. Introduction to percussion techniques – move and play
  2. Rhythm and move – your inner pulse and the rhythm
  3. Hand drumming techniques – beginner concepts
  4. Non-instrument techniques – controlling sound
  5. Long and short sounds – contrasting and technique
  6. Percussion ensemble – rhythm, move and create
  7. Improvisation and composition – we do this every day!
  8. Performing with others – listening for spaces
  9. Performing with contrast and complementarity – group composition
  10. Conducting and performance – leadership and structure

Drop in to find out what the class is all about. If you have your own percussion instruments, please feel free to bring it.
