Rhythm Performance and Good Mood

This project aims to convey the joy of playing percussion and to encourage the discovery of new melodies using new approaches.

It also trains psycho-motoric coordination and memory by means of rhythms, using Afro-Cuban and Afro-Brazilian instruments.

Also, the project explores the meaning of each instrument and the meaning of sound and harmony within the musical context of a group as well as seeking to awaken "sleeping" creativity - with the aim of channelling energy this into musical presentations.

Movement, Afro-Brazilian singing, percussion, joy, plenty of good mood, slapping, stick technique, rhythmic and musical therapy are some elements of Sheik Silva’s teaching methods in this course.
