ROOM 802

This half-day facilitation training workshop is designed to build skills for leading drum circles that integrate rhythm, melody, and movement. It's goal is to provide an inspirational and supportive environment in which each participant has the opportunity to explore the creation of community through an exciting array of interactive and enjoyable rhythmic activities, all while discovering individual, innate musicality along the way! This facilitator training features purposeful, brain-based drumming activities designed to engage and invigorate groups while stimulating key mind-body connections. By practicing these sequential activities, participants will develop facilitation skills that incorporate accessible ice breakers, non-verbal communication, intentional movement, self-expression, and creativity. The result is drum circles that are integrated, seamless, and transformative community music-making experiences.
