Reflection

Roughly his time last year I was writing about Gratitude here in the Rhythmbridge ‘annual’ blog ( Oh come on! I have a poetry blog and moderation to do, a photography blog, three websites to look after, programs to manage, workshops to run, a cat, four dogs and bats in the belfry.) But seriously, at […]

Gratitude

It’s dark and winter has fallen upon us in Scotland. Shorter days and longer nights. The desire to hibernate always rises up. It’s the Bear in me. Sleep and then sleep some more. There is a lot going on in the world wherever you sit on the political or environmental spectrum. A lot. Interesting times. […]

The Joy in Play

It really isn’t work. It’s play. Drumming. It can be serious. Very much so, but it is essentially playing. We play music…and sometimes it plays us. Since my return from Malaysia I have been playing weekly with my Glasgow group, working with pre-school children, sitting in on a wonderful traditional style Ceilidh, with songs, stories […]

Malaysia Trip

Where to begin? So much to say. A few months ago I was invited to present at the Third Asian Rhythm Faciltator’s Conference at Port Dixon, Malaysia by my good friend John J Hagedorn. I accepted readily. I was already planning to visit Kuala Lumpur and deliver an ERS Training so this was a good fit. […]

Great Feedback

I had a wonderful day today in a wee school in Leck near Kirkby Lonsdale. The sun was shining and all was well with the world and this is a stunning location for a school…just on the left of the tree in the shot below. I had a wonderful day drumming with the children and […]

It’s all in the stories

I have just completed the second Expressive Rhythm Stories Training Program in Kuala Lumpur for participants to learn how to tell ERS. On the tin it says that we will enable you to take ERS into the education sector and deliver exciting and engaging ERS sessions. Throughout the program we learn the skills and techniques […]

Drum Story Success

Just finished another fabulous 6 week long Expressive Rhythm Stories project in West Yorkshire. A huge thank you to Lizzie Hughes from Baildon Children’s Centre for continuing to champion this educational program. The feeback from the schools and from many of the parents has been fabulous. Onwards now to Malaysia and an Expressive Rhythm Story […]

Dear Drummers. December is upon us and the holiday season is just around the corner. Just completed a wonderful drum session in Glasgow with a group that really was multiculural ( 9 nationalities present) and ages from 4 to 11. Here’s what the teacher thought. We booked Paul because his website suggested that he would […]
