DRUM CIRCLES

  • Facilitator Cues

    • Rumble/roll

      • “Ambient noise” category

      • Shaking hands is “the cue”

    • Dynamics

      • Lowering or raising hands for the cue


Drum circles8

DRUM CIRCLES

  • Facilitator Cues

    • Stop/Start

      • Counting in the start

      • Counting down the cut-off

    • Mark the pulse or accent

      • Helping the group establish a pulse

      • Accent a specific beat pattern

DRUM CIRCLES

  • Facilitator Cues

    • Sculpting

      • Stopping one part of the group, in order to have them listen to another part of the group

        Tempo

      • Speed Up

      • Slow down

DRUM CIRCLES

  • Facilitator Cues

    • Call and Response

      • Facilitator plays a rhythm; group imitates the rhythm

      • One part of a group plays a rhythm; another part of the group imitates the rhythm

        No Facilitation

      • Just start jammin’ and see where it goes…!

DRUM CIRCLES

  • Form

    • Layering

      • Bring instruments in or out, one group at a time

        A – B - A

      • Apply various cue techniques, such as “ambient noise – rumble/roll” for section “A”, then a pulse or groove for section “B”, and back to the ambient noise for section “A”

    • Sound scapes

      • Focus on ambient

    • Soloists?
