Here's the description:
A percussion workshop by Musician/Percussionist & Songwriter Annie Wenz. This hands on workshop promises to be both fun & educational. This will be very different than a drum circle. Annie will be teaching all sorts of snazzy hand techniques & rhythm tricks & tools. How to play the drum to get different luscious tones. How to find "rhythm spaces" so you may create your own funky parts that compliment the grooves others play. How to get really cool sounds with NON drums!
No prior knowledge required. For adults or mature young people...
And particularly GREAT for teachers! (all of the above are WONDERFUL for youth & community groups)
As a percussionist...
I've been honored to have been in some of the best company in the world...
Teaching with Futureman/Roy Wooten of Bela Fleck & Joe Craven of David Grisman Quartet
Studying & performing with Puerto Rico's Platinum award winning/Putamayo Recording artist Jose Gonzalez, Senegal's Massamba Diop (of Babba Maal's band) & World Rhythm's Tony Vacca
& I've accompanied artists such as Darryl Scott, Peter Himmelman, Lowen & Navarro & Eddie from Ohio.
Many Thanks & hope to see some of you there!
