Jeremy Hickey (aka RSAG) has been teaching drums & percussion for over 10 years throughout the country. He will provide a fun and exciting way to learn about rhythm. Participants will use pulse, tempo, tones, prepared instruments, the human voice and the human body. Background will be given on the use of percussion on a local and global scale. Children will learn concentrating / focusing techniques, ways of exploring individuality in musical expression as well as experiencing first hand ensemble music making and the many elements surrounding performance.
