This video demonstrates a variety of easy songs that lend themselves to group drumming. I use these with group of all kinds, from music education in the classroom, to music therapy with groups. You can make them your own by changing up the lyrics and musical elements. Let me know if you find these useful and make sure to subscribe to my website news and YouTube channel.
This episode focuses on a few keys to effectively facilitating a musical process for groups including; how to not be a dictator and overly controlling, how to support others, how to help a group process through the music you play, and more. Kalani introduces you to two co-presenters at the 2016 Therapeutic Drumming Course; Abbie Ehorn and Miranda Rondeau, and he gives you some music for ukulele and percussion.
