Creative Drum Ensemble (ages 12-16)
Mondays, Jan. 8 to Feb. 19 (No Class Jan. 15 & Jan. 29)
6 to 7:30 p.m.
with Michael Sarin

Using the universal language of music, we engage young people in a group dynamic, promoting individual and collaborative creativity, while also providing an encouraging environment for original artistic self-expression. We begin as a percussion/drum ensemble and then incorporate other instruments, exploring jazz, funk, soul, world music, rock, and pop. We also promote the voice as an important vehicle for expression via spoken word, rap, and singing. Participants share in creative control by contributing their composition ideas. We will look for performance opportunities within Red Bank, adding our voice to its diverse and culturally rich community. Limited to 10 participants.
