Drum-Circle Facilitator Training – One Day Introduction

Join us for this introduction to the VMC Drum-Circle Facilitator Training Method used to build and empower community across the world

Saturday, October 31st, 9am until 4.00pm

Venue: TBC

Cost – $95 (This will be a one time offer at this price. Usually worth $190)

This is a one-day introduction to drum-circle facilitation based on the community empowerment model pioneered by Arthur Hull of Village Music Circles and used to support, connect and uplift communities across the world. This training is for community musicians, educators, therapists and others wanting to use music to connect and support people using rhythmic music. No prior musical experience is required.

Participants will learn the theory and techniques to guide people through this process and fulfill their musical potential in a safe way. During this course trainees will have regular opportunities to practice the basic techniques of facilitation, and receive feedback. Small group break-out sessions allow for more intimate skill development before participants get to test their skills on the full circle.

Testimonials – What People Say:
 
“Wow, wow, wow. Just home from a Drumming class.
 
I’d have to say that Benjie is the most genuine, patient and enlightened individual I’ve met in a long time. I think it’s fair to say that I’m the worst and most ‘unco’ drummer he has had to date, yet he was patient and offered genuine support.
 
If you’re looking for something fun, inclusive and different, give it a go. You won’t be sorry. “
– Vicki Childs
 
“Never felt so empowered and enthused what an inspiring soul. Can’t recommend this enough. Everyone should have a shot at finding the beat”
