An introduction to drumming will be hosted by The Little White Church in the Woods (aka Camp Snowflake). The program has two parts. The first part is from 9:00 am - 10:30 am. During that time facilitator Lynn Turner will introduce some of the different types of drums, why people drum, documentation of health benefits of drumming, drum etiquette, and some of the different cultural types of drumming. Then there will a half hour break. The second part of the program is from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm. During the second part participants will experience drumming in a drum circle and explore different percussive instruments in a fun, engaging facilitated drum circle.
This event is open to the wider community. Call Snowflake Camp at 231.735.7507 for details and directions.
During the event, 15 participants added their unique pulse to the group collective. And they added their creative rhythmic additions as well. In the picture below note the cowbell being held out on a drumstick for a neighboring drummer. This helped this young drummer complete her ad hoc drum kit of several buckets and cowbell that served as a symbol. Also note the coffee can use that provided a solid drum beat. As we noted before the coffee can was donated to the group and we were glad that is was regular, not decaffeinated!
