Chanting: Engage and Create

Presented with Alyssa Yeager.

Do you enjoy listening to or participating in chants, but want to learn how to be more involved in the musical process? Participants will warm-up by learning a few traditional chants. We will then practice adding simple drum and percussion rhythms while keeping the chant steady! The workshop will conclude with an opportunity for the group to create a chant around our intentions for the day.
