This is a 4-week class.

Get your week started with some rhythm!

Experience the release of workday cares, and the joyful shared energy of making rhythm and music in community with others. Research findings support the physical, mental, emotional and social benefits of group music making. Participating in musical activities can reduce stress and foster relaxation, increase alpha brain wave activity and enhance creative thinking, help regulate our nervous system, support a healthy immune system, plus drumming in particular, is a safe and natural cardiovascular exercise.

- Experience our Natural Rhythm, because we all have rhythm in us – Honest!

- Explore rhythms from world cultures, and different music styles

- Play a variety of stick & hand drums and percussion instruments

- Create solid ensemble grooves that sound and feel great

Explore the natural rhythms available in the spoken word – a.k.a poetry and rap

Plus! For those that are inspired to get up and move, longtime HIP instructor Deanna Anderson will lead optional warm-up stretches and creative rhythmic movement.
