Rhythm is life! Rhythm underlies almost all musical expression, as the essential heart and drive of expression and interaction. Percussion encompasses all forms that perform rhythms, both with various instruments and by other means such as your voice and body. Percussion is used in all kinds of cultures to communicate, guide interplay and get people moving.
What will you be doing?
In this week you will work with a large collection of rhythms and playing techniques, practicing a wide variety of instruments. You will use various drums, hand and effect percussion, body and vocal percussion, and even scrap-art percussion. You will play with traditional, contemporary, and ultimately homemade rhythms! At the end of the week, you and the other students will create a collage of different rhythms, styles, and applications – with the icing on the cake that you perform that collage together!
The aim of this course is to discover the fantastic world of percussion and playing together! Besides a broad introduction to various percussion styles and training of the skills, the focus will also be on listening, tuning and synchronizing your playing. Under the guidance of Martin, you will embark on a musical journey together this week!
