United States
Half-day program offers techniques and strategies from expert drum circle facilitator Dave Holland

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – September 15, 2007 – Those interested in learning how to facilitate a drum circle will have the chance to learn from renowned trainer and facilitator Dave Holland on Sunday, Nov. 4, at a workshop presented by the Percussive Arts Society in conjunction with its international convention, PASIC, in Columbus, Ohio.

The Drum Circle Facilitation Workshop will be held from noon to 5 p.m. in rooms C120-C125 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Drummers and non-drummers alike are welcome to attend. No prior drumming experience is necessary.

“This year’s workshop is geared toward finding new and creative ways to engage people through rhythm and will include concepts and techniques for the music teacher, band director, music therapist and anyone interested in presenting rhythm events,” said Holland.

The workshop will cover the fundamentals of rhythm facilitation, universal percussion techniques and activities for creating interactive rhythm events. A variety of instruments will be available for use at the workshop through the support of Mountain Rythym, the event’s sponsor. Participants are welcome to bring their own drums.

Dave Holland is a professional drum circle facilitator and trainer and founded Beatn’ Path Arts, an organization that develops teamwork, diversity and environmental awareness through interactive rhythm based events. He leads regular drum circles at schools, public housing communities, health fairs and music festivals.

Registration for the workshop is $55 for PASIC attendees and $65 for non Percussive Arts Society members. The fee includes access to the International Drum & Percussion Expo and Terrace Concerts on Saturday, Nov. 3. On-site registration is also available.
