The Rhythmical Alchemy PlayshopÅ is for everyone! No Experience is Necessary. This family friendly explorational event is open to anyone of any age, background or musical ability as we explore the power of rhythm in all aspects of our lives.

The Rhythmical Alchemy PlayshopÅ is for anyone wishing to experience their musical spirit in a playful and safe environment. Using contact improvisation, vocals, rhythmical games, hand drumming and drum circle consciousness we create musical fun in a safe place.

Arthur's goal for the INDIVIDUAL is to rediscover, reawaken and explore that rhythmical relationship with the universe that we each had as a child and to carry it with us into the rest of our lives.

Arthur's goal for the GROUP is to playfully inspire group awareness through movement games, vocals, and percussion. The group will also create its own music improvisation as an expression of our developing rhythmical community.

Community facilitators will have an opportunity to learn rhythm games and exercises applicable to expanding their facilitator's tool kit.

You are encouraged to bring your favorite hand drums, percussion toys, wood blocks, shakers and special sounds. Percussion toys will be available. Boom! Klink! Boing!!!
