FunDrum - Music Therapy Workshop is an online Music
Therapy workshop created for you to connect with others, meet
new people, make some music, and feel more relaxed and
supported. For this FunDrum Workshop, the class will be led by
a Music Therapist and you will improvise with any instrument
or resource you have available in your at home (an ice cream
bucket, etc) This is a 4 week workshop that's on Friday's at
4:00 PM, starting on Friday November 20th.
Please note, spaces in the workshop are limited, and spots
will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
Here's what FunDrum is all about:
FunDrum offers opportunities to interact
and engage with others in the group. It promotes collaborative music
making and positive community spirit between group members. Drumming
encourages verbal and non-verbal communication, and it allows for
the development of relationships at a deeper level.
FunDrum incorporates instruments or the
sounds in your home with various tones and timbres. Exploring and
improvising on these and being led through different ways to play
and play together is integral to the music experience for each session.
FunDrum promotes a safe and positive
space for all group members to express how the music makes them
feel. This can be accomplished, verbally, musically, or
non-verbally. Participants are also encouraged to be respectful of
each others’ expressions.
