Drum-making, Music-making, and Drum Choir

Join instrument-maker John Tewksbury and cross-cultural percussionist and rhythm master Steve Bloom to fashion a simple instrument and make collective music. Sharing decoration ideas with other participants, make your own personalized, renewable-frame drum. Then, learn how to play basic rhythms from Asia and participate in the "choir," with your drum as your voice, in a finale performance at the evening’s conclusion.
