“Heartbeats"
World Drumming & Rhythm

Drumming has been shown to be a powerful tool for promoting relaxation
and enhancing overall well-being. It also provides a stimulating release of
energy which helps to reduce tension and stress. Keeping a beat is one of our most primitive instincts and continues to be used by many cultures as a vehicle for achieving transcendental and meditative states.

The “Heartbeats" program strives to create a supportive environment in
which our inner sense of rhythm can be explored and developed. Using a variety of drums and percussion instruments, participants play diverse world rhythms with emphasis placed on ensemble skills as well as individual expression. Basic hand drumming techniques are presented in order to facilitate performance.
