Programs In Schools

Workshops  ~  for small to medium sized groups of any age . . . and are
used as intensive studies of rhythm, structured activity, and much more.

Residencies  ~  With the help of the music teacher . . . we take over music
classes for the week. In each class students get personal instruction on striking
the drum, how to use vocalization to play different rhythms, and then learn to play
multi-part Afro / Latin music in a group setting ~ all in just a few short minutes.
Most of the class time will be for fun music making and not the instruction.

Performances  ~  are forty-five minutes to two hours. I teach the basics of playing a
drum to the whole room and then invite small groups of 15 to 25 students on stage to play.
Once the drummers and chorus are shown how to play a rhythm the audience participates
with clapping and vocals . . . this is when the 'magic' begins. Then every 12 to 20 minutes
another group comes onto the stage to play... and there's usually a surprise finale !!

Drumming has been used for centuries for the purpose of healing, ritual,
and celebration. Using the ancient wisdom passed down by indigenous
peoples, we can use harmony and balance to raise our positive
vibrations and promote healing for ourselves and each other.

The research shows that drumming is great for our health and vitality...
for the mind, body, and spirit. In these sessions,
Jeff will teach basic drum
techniques to produce a good sound, show why we use our voice to learn
rhythms, and how to find, explore, and express your Inner Spirit Voice.

As time allows, we will travel through different exercises that lower stress
levels, improve the body's immune response, increase an overall sense
of well-being, and will strengthen your connection to each other...
This is when the Magic Happens and Healing Begins ! ! !
