Rhythm for Singers workshop with Matt Meyer
April 23, 2023 | 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us for this energetic, fully participatory workshop designed to help singers better understand rhythm in the mind, body, and spirit. With Matt’s guidance, we will explore the theories and practices of West African, South Indian and European perspectives on rhythm. This is as much rhythm training as you can possibly fit into a 90-minute master class! Suitable for adults and youth participants ages 12 and up, and/or slightly younger music students with at least one year of directed lesson experience.
There is no cost to take part, though a free will offering will be gratefully received.
Also come experience Matt’s music which we’ll feature at Sunday Services on April 23.
