Enhance your rites of spring with the rhythmic bliss of hand drumming. Laurie Loeb’s Rhythms of the Heart offers an African-inspired drumming workshop Sunday, April 25, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Carbondale Community School. Appropriate for beginners and intermediates, the workshop will focus on developing rhythmic sensibilities, playing multi-part rhythmic patterns in ensembles, and basic techniques for djembe/ashiko hand-drumming. Participants will also have the opportunity to play African-style bass drums and cowbell, as well as create their own improvisational rhythms. Group hand drumming provides relaxation, increased energy, and a sense of well-being, and has been proven to enhance coordination, mind-body connection, attention, and listening skills. Studies have also shown a direct correlation to improved immune system functions and heightened spiritual awareness. Workshop fee is $45 if paid by April 18, $50 after April 18. Drum rental: $8. Advance registration is required.
