Beenhakkers Percussion offers different kinds of programs. They are all suited for many different occasions: a corporate conference energiser, meeting icebreaker, break-out, away day activity, or a team building exercise.
The programs can be fun, serious or both (mostly) Each program has it’s own accents and quality. All programs have lots of humour and community building.
The rhythm is already in you!
You don’t have to learn rhythm, you just have to discover: your personal rhythms, how to listen, how to focus, and how to interact with the other team-mates.
A facilitated drumcircle is all about dis-covering and fun, not about learning.
Longer program with various percussion instruments. Within the group everybody creates his/her own rhythm. The facilitator listens to the group and gives directions in HOW to play, not WHAT to play, so the group learns how to create together an in-the-moment rhythm. Everyone can explore end express their rhythms in any form that works for them. Looking for and sharing things that connects you with the others, instead of what separates you from the others.
Accent is on connection, contact, relationship, sharing, exploration, respect, community building.
