Monday Evening Drumming with John Felice
July 9th through August 13th, 5 PM
Come join us at the KAA on Mondays for fun-filled summer evenings of drum-circle style classes accessible to everyone from “never-ever played any instrument EVER” to the seasoned musician.
Through the experience of playing multi-part rhythms from around the world, we will learn how to make a drum sound great, enjoy making music together as a community, and creatively express ourselves with percussion!
John will provide drums, bells, singing stones, boomwhackers and other exotic percussion. Feel free to bring any percussion of your own, even if you don’t know what it is.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
John Felice has been leading drum-circles and teaching the hand-drumming traditions of Africa and other cultures for over 20 years throughout New England. Since 1995 he has led the local drum group “Positive RePercussions.” He is passionate about and committed to sharing the healing power and “mindfulness” aspects of drumming, as well as the purely joyful and musical aspects. Restoration of damaged and forlorn instruments, and crafting beautiful custom drums is another of John’s passions.
Cost: $60 for the series of 6 classes, or single drop in class is $12.
If you have any questions about the class or any of his other work, give us a call here at KAA and we’ll be happy to put you in touch with John Felice.
