Explore the foundation of the universal language of drumming, rhythm, pulse, time, and tone. Learn rhythm patterns and complete drum songs of world music, contemporary rhythms, sacred rhythms and drum songs rooted in women's traditions. We will also explore topics such as community drum etiquette, intersectional facilitation, drum circle facilitation, acquiring a drum, care of hands/body, drum maintenance and tuning. All skill levels welcomed. Participants will need a drum, rattle, bell, shakers, or a percussion instrument.
Running time ~ 1.5 hours. Closes with a few moments of Leah & Chloe of Rising Appalachia singing live at the women's conference.
