This year we will be at Westlake Park.
From 5-7 PM SHD will host a playshop and open jam.
The first hour will be our playshop. Our second hour will be an open jam.
No experience necessary. All are welcome.
Please bring your instruments. All acoustic instruments welcomed.
Here's what our playshop and jam will look like…
*Basic fundamentals, technique and drum circle etiquette.
We will go over hand positions, body posture, how to hold your drum for comfort and ease when playing.
We will work on our bass and tone sounds.
Drum circle hand signals, covering tempo up and down, volume up and down, call and response, individual and sectional playing and starting and stopping as a group.
*The 'Boom-Boom Diggy'
Boom-Boom Diggy is a fun rhythm/vocal exercise and rhythm where we emphasize the 'if you can say it, you can play it' attitude. Our Vocal patterns will match our rhythm and we will have some fun with this one, playing around with it and sharing some solo playing.
*Drums Songs
A drum song is something I've created for a more unique and creative drum and music experience. Basically, instead of all of us playing the same rhythm, we will individually go around the circle offering up a sound or rhythm. One at a time we go clockwise around the circle with each person contributing their piece adding to to collective sound. By the time we go around the circle we will have a unique drum song instead of a unison rhythm. Creative and organic, it is different every time.
*Open Jam
At the end of our regular sessions and as a session of its own, we will have an open jam. If you got chops, bring 'em. This part is not facilitated (but may be guided). Anyone start a rhythm or even make a go at stepping in to lead the circle a bit using the hand gesture techniques covered in the beginning portion of our playshop.
**If you need your djembe (or other rope tuned drum) tuned come early to help setup and we can pull some rope for you. If you want to learn how, we can cover that too.
If you have your own drum(s) and or percussion instruments, please bring them. We will have a limited amount on hand to share.
