Let’s Get our Groove Back in 2021!
It has been a long time since we have done anything with our bodies! What better way to “get back in the groove” than to make rhythm with our bodies. These classes are aimed at beginners, but even advanced players of other instruments will gain much from focusing on rhythm for few Sundays.
These workshops will be designed for any musician wishing to become more comfortable with different types of rhythms, rhythmic notation, including those which may seem more complex or intimidating. We will cover different rhythmic feels for various styles of music and expand your vocabulary and comfort level regarding performing with various feels, rhythms, rhythmic reading ability and time signatures. Digital “hand-out” links (download) will be available for participants to follow along and interact with during the class.
