What we're about

In this monthly rhythmic event, we will be exploring drums, other percussion instruments, and the breath of life (voices and native flutes) to explore our connections to our physical, emotional, and spiritual selves and to each other. Elementary, universal principles of drumming (called the ABCs of drumming) will be presented at the beginning of each session. Then we will continue to expand our connections to ourselves and each other through rhythmic games and exercises, drumming world rhythms together – in unison, in multiple parts, and with other instruments – and creating soundscapes. The secret (actually well-known) is to relax, listen, join in, then fit in. Each session will close with an open “drum jam.” No musical experience or self-perceived talent is necessary for these sessions. An assortment of drums and other instruments will be provided, and you are very welcome to bring your own.

SKUUC Drumming For Spirit Rhythmic Event

Online event

Our monthly "rhythmic event" now occurs online, as long as the pandemic lockdown and good, science-backed, common-sense practices remain in effect. Have available any drum, percussion instruments, and found-object percussion you have at hand, and we'll drum, chant, sing, and shake all our pandemic-based sillies out, while maintaining, to the best of our ability, the original intentions of exploring our spirituality through the elements of music. Please RSVP if you can. I'll post the Zoom link in the comments section the week preceding the event, for the benefit of those who don't plan ahead.
