BODY PERCUSSION WORKSHOP
Saturday, Aug 10th
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for Body Percussion-Rhythmic Freedom with Maurice Oliver. We utilize counting games from India, Africa, and Latin America to involve participants in polyrhythmic counting, chanting, onomatopoeia, clapping, stepping, and slapping of the thighs, the chest, knees and body thus creating a rhythmic pattern. Maurice will conduct layering patterns and working in a round to perform body percussions as a Symphony, a Concerto, and a Concerto Grosso.
Maurice Oliver honed his musical talent at The Juilliard School of Music In Manhattan. He studied orchestral percussion, majoring in tympani. He also worked with pioneers in the electronic music field.
