About the event

RhythmetriX is thrilled to partner with Villaige Music Circles, where Arthur Hull, the founding father of modern drumming facilitation and global training legend, is coming to lend his 50 years of mastery to those willing to let loose and play. So what is this and how does it work? 

The Rhythmical Alchemy Playshop™ is for everyone! No experience is necessary. This experiential, family-friendly event offers people of all ages and backgrounds a playful and safe environment to explore the power of rhythm in our lives, both for professional facilitators and the average rhythm-loving humanoid! 

Program Content

In the Rhythmical Alchemy Playshop™ our rhythm community builds as we play, sing, dance and drum together. Using contact improvisation, vocals, rhythmical games, hand drumming and drum circle consciousness, we create musical fun in a nurturing place.

Explore expressive activities through musical ice-breakers, rhythm-play, vocal games, songs and theater improv for community-building fun!

This weekend experiential playshop provides 18-20 hours of rhythmical exploration, practice and fun! Facilitators of all backgrounds and experience levels will gain innovative motivational techniques and inspirational activities suitable for multiple group applications. Learn new approaches to recreational drumming!
