    WORLD DRUMMING WORKSHOP




    World Rhythms & Songs, Music Creation

    Drumming Techniques, Fun


    Drums are provided. Beginners are warmly welcomed. Ages 15 and up.

    Enjoy a high-energy, joyful evening of drumming with Jim Donovan. This brand new workshop focuses on using the drum to create and play beautiful music with others. Discover why people from all over the globe have been drumming together for thousands of years.
     
    During the World Drumming Workshop you will learn how to:

    ·        Play exciting traditional rhythms and songs from all over the world
    ·        Express yourself through “in-the-moment” original music creation
    ·        Refine your drumming technique
    ·        Use rhythm to relax & relieve stress
    ·        Create connection through music

    The World Drumming Workshop will also connect you with ideas and concepts to help you use drumming to:

    ·        Increase focus
    ·        Expand creative thinking and awareness
    ·        Find and refine your own voice
    ·        Deepen your listening skills

    Even if you consider yourself “unmusical”, group drumming is an accessible entry point into the rewarding world of music creation. In the World Drumming Workshop, you are never expected to be perfect, or even any “good” at it. All that is required is a willingness to try.

    Jim Donovan M.ED Leadership, Faculty member at Saint Francis University, is a master facilitator, inspirational trainer and world-class musician with over 25 years of leadership, teaching and performance experience. Donovan has presented hundreds of events across the US and Europe where he has helped many thousands of people learn effective ways to consciously lead, connect and live healthier, more productive lives.

    Potomac Valley Master Naturalists

        

    Relatively new on the scene, Master Naturalist programs are patterned after the Master Gardener Program that has been offered in many states for many years by local extension agents. The basic approach for both programs is to combine education with public service.

    West Virginia's Master Naturalist Program is one of the first in the nation. It was established in 2003 by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, and it is administered by that agency.

    Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) partnered with WVDNR in 2006 to establish the  Master Naturalist program, which is the official Master Naturalist Chapter for the Eastern Panhandle.
