This highly experiential course is part drum circle, part show-and-tell, and part wellness practice, including mindfulness and sound-based meditation. It features hand-on music-making using hand drums, West African stick drums, percussion instruments from around the world, and some movement and voice. Students will also experience intentional sound-that is, time to relax in a gentle soundscape created by the instructor with gongs, metal and crystal bowls, chimes, and more. This class is highly adaptive to anyone's needs and beginners are especially encouraged to attend. No experience or special skills are needed and all instruments are provided. This course is open to anyone who wants to relax, learn about how rhythm and vibration can help us be resilient to stress, reduce anxiety, and learn to use music, rhythm, and breath to control and alter mood.
