Ben Elmer Boulder Fringe Percussion Workshop
17-year-old percussionist and collaborator Ben Elmer will lead a children’s percussion workshop. In the workshop kids will be taught the fundamentals of rhythm and percussion, and coached in exploring the sounds of found object music. Students will use everyday objects (i.e. buckets, trash can lids) as sound-producing instruments. Group harmonization and individual expression will be cultivated in a collective sound circle at the conclusion of the workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring objects from their everyday life. Drumsticks and some objects will be provided.
