Polyrhythm and Mixed Meter Workshop with MARC MOMMAAS for all instruments:
As an improviser and student of music, rhythm stands at the center of your muse. Often instrumentalists seem shy and hesitate to embark in a rhythmic adventure, maybe because the concepts feel too far removed from your instrument. Yes, there is always a lot to work on, but recognize that rhythm is the mainframe with limitless possibilities and colors to explore. Do not worry about your level. You might not feel ready but realize that the time is in the present. In this workshop you’ll get exposed to beautiful rhythms inspired by cultures across the globe. It is a step by step process with the guidance of a tested and well thought through comprehensive method developed over two decades by Marc Mommaas. And remember, work on one rhythmic principle at a time and have fun getting into the feel of it. In the end, any rhythm you work on will strengthen your inner pulse and confidence in the music you love.Intermediate and Advanced level.
